Grants of up to $10,000 to Connecticut faculty at eligible institutions to pursue research projects in the areas of space science, aeronautics, space technology, and the human exploration of space. Priority will be given to collaborations, research that involves students, and early-career applicants.
To encourage faculty participation in research in areas related to the mission of NASA at Connecticut Space Grant Consortium member institutions, the Consortium will award faculty research grants during the program year. Research grants are available to support faculty, staff, and students in research pursuits.
Research Grants provide the opportunity for faculty of consortium institutions to work on novel research projects involving NASA centers, the aerospace industry, or other fields that are of interest to NASA and their strategic enterprises. (NASA restricts research grants to U.S. Citizens.)
Preference will be given to applicants who 1) are non-tenured and/or early career, 2) who use these funds as seed money, 3) who collaborate with other Consortium members (within Connecticut), and 4) whose research involves/supports students.
A proposal must demonstrate a link between the proposal work and one of NASA’s strategic enterprises. They are Space Science, Mission to Planet Earth, Human Exploration and Development of Space, Space Technology, and Aeronautics.
NASA Connecticut Space Grant Consortium (CTSGC) is one of 52 state-based, university-led Space Grant Consortia funded by NASA Education to develop and implement student fellowship and scholarship programs, interdisciplinary space-related research infrastructure, education, and public service programs; and cooperative initiatives with industry, research laboratories, and state, local and other governments.
