Welcome to The NAU/NASA Space Grant Program
NASA Space Grant is a nationwide program funded by NASA. It is designed to develop the young minds of STEM graduate and undergraduate students into thinking beyond the classroom by actively performing NASA related research alongside a faculty mentor. Our program at NAU provides 20-25 undergraduate internships to exceptional students interested in promoting the understanding of space-related research to the public. We are located on the second floor (building 19 Physical Sciences) in the Department of Astronomy and Planetary Science.
NAU Space Grant Program is a part of the statewide Arizona Space Grant Consortium.
Our mission is to expand opportunities for Americans to learn about and participate in NASA’s programs by supporting and enhancing science and engineering education, research, and outreach and by delivering high-quality public education programs.
Our goal is to integrate research with education to help build a diverse, scientifically literate citizenry and a well-prepared science, engineering, and technology workforce. We are proud of our students, programs, and accomplishments and appreciate your interest in the Arizona Space Grant Consortium.
