Deadlines are in late October and early November. (Check website for details)
The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the United States and reinforces its diversity. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees at accredited US institutions. The NSF welcomes applications from all qualified students and strongly encourages under-represented populations, including women, under-represented racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with disabilities, to apply for this fellowship. Participate in HSFI’s webinar on NSF GRFP before the deadline to learn the traits of a competitive application http://hsfi-nsf.eventbrite.com
2015 RASC-AL Aerospace Concepts Design Competition
Notice of Intent Requested by: November 3, 2014
Deadline: January 11, 2015
NASA and the National Institute of Aerospace announce the 2015 Revolutionary Aerospace Systems Concepts-Academic Linkage, or RASC-AL, Aerospace Concepts competition. RASC-AL is a design project competition for university-level engineering students and faculty. The RASC-AL competition is open to full-time undergraduate or graduate students majoring in engineering or science at an accredited university. University design teams must include one faculty or industry advisor with a university affiliation and two or more undergraduate or graduate students. A group of universities may also collaborate on a design project entry. Multidisciplinary teams are encouraged. Concepts derived from the design projects could potentially be implemented by NASA.
The 2015 RASC-AL contest challenges participants to design projects based on real NASA problems, responding to one of four themes:
- Earth-Independent Mars Pioneering Architecture
- Earth-Independent Lunar Pioneering Architecture
- Mars' Moons Prospector Mission
- Large-Scale Mars Entry, Decent and Landing Pathfinder Mission
