A member of National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program (Space Grant), the Oregon NASA Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) supports the agency’s objectives of fostering and encouraging careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and STEM education to develop a skilled, high-performing, capable, and diverse next-generation workforce. Access to experiential learning and research opportunities are crucial to enhancing a student’s academic experience in order to meet the needs of NASA and the nation. OSGC programs are directed towards undergraduate students in STEM fields and designed to complement a student’s academic career experience. In support of the national priority to increase diversity in STEM fields, women, individuals from underserved and underrepresented groups in the STEM fields, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to participate.
The Oregon Space Grant STudent Academic Research Review (STARR) Award Program is directed towards STEM and STEM Education students attending our member community colleges and four-year universities who are interested in space science/aerospace-related careers. The STARR Program provides students an opportunity to apply for a one-year award to enhance and supplement their academic study in STEM and STEM education. These awards also serve to recognize student’s achievements in these fields.
STARR awards are open to students in a broad range of STEM disciplines, including aerospace-related engineering and mathematics, as well as earth sciences, chemistry, biology, food science, and computer science relating to NASA’s vision and mission. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
