Congress established the National Space Grant College
and Fellowship Program (Space Grant) with Title II of the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration Authorization Act of 1988. The National Space
Grant College and Fellowship Program, through the designation of Space
Grant consortia and the establishment of Space Grant programs and fellowships,
was designed to broaden the base of universities and individuals contributing
to and benefiting from aerospace science and technology and ultimately
contribute to the development and utilization of space resources.
Space Grant National Program Objectives:
- Establish and maintain a national network of universities
with interests and capabilities in aeronautics, space and related fields;
- Encourage cooperative programs among universities, aerospace industry, and Federal, state and local governments;
- Encourage interdisciplinary training, research and public service programs related to aerospace;
- Recruit and train U.S. citizens, especially women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities, for careers in aerospace science and technology; and,
- Promote a strong science, mathematics, and technology
education base from elementary through secondary levels.
