The Education Enhancement Grant is intended to support project-based course development, capstone courses, curriculum or course re-design. The grant can also be used to support student retention and achievement programs in science, engineering, and technology areas. These courses should be part of the regular academic program in higher education institutions.
Funds may be used to support faculty or staff release time, graduate and undergraduate student support, or travel related to the course. Course curriculum must be in the areas of space, aerospace, aeronautics, robotics, or any area of interest to NASA. Funds may not be used to support tuition.
This grant is intended to supplement/augment (not duplicate) already existing opportunities. As is true with all NMSGC programs, the participation by minorities, women, and persons with disabilities is strongly encouraged. U.S. citizenship is required. This is a one-time award.
