NASA announces 2012 space technology research fellowship grants

NASA has selected the 2012 class of Space Technology Research Fellows.

Forty-eight students will receive graduate student fellowships from NASA’s Space Technology Program to pursue master’s or doctoral degrees in relevant space technology disciplines at their respective institutions.

Through the Space Technology Research Fellowships Program, NASA is providing the nation with a pipeline of highly skilled engineers and technologists to improve U.S. competitiveness while developing the intellectual and technological foundation needed for future science and exploration missions. The program is part of a renewed emphasis on technology at NASA, which is designed to inspire the nation and contribute to an innovation-driven economy.

“By investing in the intellectual capacity of America’s best and brightest minds today, we’re guaranteeing not only a great future for NASA, but also for the nation,” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said. “These NASA Fellows will bolster America’s competitiveness in a knowledge-based, global economy while enabling our space exploration goals.”

NASA Space Technology Fellows will perform innovative space technology research while building the skills necessary to become future technological leaders. Selected candidates will perform graduate student research on their respective campuses and at NASA centers and nonprofit U.S. research and development laboratories.
