This is a joint program with consortium members and is highly competitive. In an effort to encourage advanced education in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics) the Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) offers financial support through competitively awarded fellowship opportunities. To be considered for a fellowship, students must be citizens of the United States pursuing a graduate degree in a STEM-related discipline at an Ohio member university. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. OSGC member schools and related STEM disciplines are listed below. All fellowship recipients are required to propose and initiate a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor during the academic school year. Recipients must also attend and present the findings of their research/educational activity at the Annual Student Research Symposium, held every April at the Ohio Aerospace Institute in Cleveland, Ohio. Interested students should contact the Campus Representative at their home university for more information. Note that no indirect charges are allowed by the university for fellowship awards. All fellowship awards are contingent on available funding.
Awards to Master's students are $16,000 for a calendar year, plus a tuition waiver provided by the university; these may be extended for an additional six-month period if the student's academic performance is acceptable, good progress has been made on the research project, and upon approval of the Campus Representative. Master’s 1 recipients who are interested in an extension are encouraged to follow up with their Campus Representative about their school’s policy. Master’s fellowship recipients are required to attend the Annual Student Research Symposium at the Ohio Aerospace Institute and make a Power Point presentation on their research project. Note that no indirect charges are allowed by the university for Master’s fellowship awards. All Master’s fellowship awards are contingent on available funding.
