Student Competition Program

The Student Competition Program provides funding for college and university student teams participating in NASA or STEM-related competitions. Funding may be used for travel or supplies. Award amount may be up to $5,000. The overall goal for this program is to effectively utilize the resources available through NMSGC to support student participation in space and aerospace related design competitions. As is true with all NMSGC programs, the participation of underrepresented minorities, women, and persons with disabilities is strongly encouraged. This opportunity is open year-round; however, it is contingent upon grant funding availability and period of performance.
