Arizona Space Grant Consortium (Annual - Yr 1)

Project: Research project

Description

The Arizona Space Grant Consortium (AZSGC) is a Phase I NASA Space Grant College and Fellowship Consortium with the three State Universities: The University of Arizona (UA), Arizona State University (ASU), Northern Arizona University (NAU), and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) forming its nucleus with UA as the lead institution. Since its 1989 inception, AZSGC has worked to develop and expand opportunities for Americans to learn about and participate in NASA's programs by supporting and enhancing science and engineering education, research, and public programs in space, Earth, and aerospace-related fields. All AZSGC sponsored programs are geared to fulfill NASA education goals of strengthening NASA and the Nation's future workforce, attracting and retaining students in STEM disciplines, and engaging Americans in NASA's mission. The Space Grant Program at ASU does this by supporting undergraduate interns and graduate fellows to participate in NASA-related science, engineering and STEM education and public informal education. To address NASAs goal of increasing diversity in Space Grant programs, we are actively working to increase the ethnic, gender and disciplinary diversity of our steering committee as well as our interns and fellows. This is done by targeting a divers group of steering committee members and by promoting our program to and attracting applications from an increasingly diverse set of students.}
