NASA initiated the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program in 1989. The Space Grant national network includes over 850 affiliates from universities, colleges, industry, museums, science centers, and state and local agencies. These affiliates belong to consortia in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. These institutions are working to expand opportunities for Americans to learn about and participate in NASA's aeronautics and space projects by supporting and enhancing science and engineering education, research and public outreach efforts. The 52 consortia fund scholarships and fellowships for students pursuing careers in science, mathematics, engineering and technology (STEM), as well as curriculum enhancement and faculty development. Member colleges and universities also administer pre-college and public service education projects in their states.
The Indiana Space Grant Consortium (INSGC) was created in 1991 under the Space Grant Program. Following on the Space Grant goals, the INSGC motto is “Inspire, Engage, Educate, and Employ”. Our awards programs are designed to implement that motto and the INSGC Vision: “The INSGC will be the premier source of coordination, information, and inspiration for NASA-related education, outreach, and workforce development needs of the State of Indiana”.
