NJ Space Grant Consortium

The New Jersey Space Grant Consortium (NJSGC), funded by NASA, has a mission of advancing aerospace education, research, and technology.

Four programs are designed to fulfill this mission:  (1) Industry-University Research Collaborations (2) Undergraduate Student Summer Fellowships (3) K-12 Science Education Projects and (4) General Public Outreach. NASA has commended NJSGC for its Industry-University Research and Student Summer Fellowship Programs.

The Space Grant program, which was established in 1988, is a national network of 835 universities, colleges, federal R&D centers, and business partners, located in 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

The Space Grant consortia operate a portfolio of initiatives that respond to Congressional concern for a comprehensive national strategy “to energize student interest in science, engineering, mathematics, or other disciplines needed for NASA's future workforce.”
