The Virginia Community College System and NASA are partners in a new NASA grant awarded to the Virginia Space Grant Consortium. The initiative, STEM Takes Flight at Virginia’s Community Colleges, offers $5000 mentored scholarships, paid industry internships, NASA research experiences and new courses for Virginia’s community college STEM majors as well as professional development for faculty at NASA in STEM fields. More information is available for download below:
The first deadline under this initiative, November 17, is for the $5000 mentored scholarship award for STEM majors (not allied health or business). Students who are fulltime freshmen in the current semester and who will not be graduating before May 2016 are eligible to apply for this award. Other program components have more extended deadlines.
Get involved now with these wonderful opportunities that tie so well to our strategic goals for increased access to affordable education and training in preparation for workforce success and student graduation and retention.
