The Student Competition Program provides support to teams participating in NASA and space-related design competitions. Funding may be used for travel or supplies. Awards may be made for up to $5,000. The overall goal for this program is to effectively utilize the resources available through NMSGC to support student participation in space and aerospace related design competitions. As is true with all NMSGC programs, the participation by minorities, women, and persons with disabilities is strongly encouraged. Applicants and team participants receiving funding must be U.S. citizens. Applications are accepted any time. If awarded, it will take at least 45 days to process your request. U.S. citizenship is required.
