Maryland Space Grant Consortium
2012-2013 Scholarship Application
The Maryland Space Grant Consortium was established in 1989 under NASA's National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program.
One of the goals of the Maryland Space Grant Consortium is to offer financial support to Maryland residents or graduates of Maryland high schools who are enrolling as an undergraduate student in an affiliate institution who otherwise might not be able to attend college and who wish to pursue a career in math, science, engineering, or technolog, that is related to aerospace or will lead to an aerospace career.
Awardees must be U.S. citizens enrolled as full-time students at a Maryland Consortium campus. Consortium campuses include: The Johns Hopkins University, Morgan State University, Towson University, University of Maryland-College Park, University of MD Baltimore County, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Capitol College, and Hagerstown Community College.
Awards vary and must be used for the following educational expenses (tuition, books, fees and room and board).
- Maryland resident or graduate of a Maryland high school.
- Full-time student majoring in (but are not necessarily limited to): the biological and life sciences, chemistry, geological sciences, physics and astronomy, engineering and computer science. Please note that we are interested in students whose academic major and career aspirations are likely to be related to aerospace.
- Enrollment in an affiliate institution of the Maryland Space Grant Consortium (see above).
- Awards are for one year, but are renewable (on a competitive basis) upon maintaining a 3.0 G.P.A.
- U. S. Citizen.
- Community service.
DEADLINE: Please feel free to submit an application, but it is not clear if, and how many, new scholarships we will be able to award in the coming 2013/2014 academic year, due to a significant reduction in our funding level.
Application materials would normally be due by May 15, 2013 to the Maryland Space Grant Consortium. Maryland Space Grant Consortium will then forward the application to affiliate institution selected by the student applicant.
