W&M graduate students have been very successful in receiving research fellowships from the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC). During the past four years, sixteen W&M A&S graduate students have received new $5,000 research fellowships and ten W&M A&S grad students have received $5,000 renewals. The term "aerospace" is interpreted very broadly, although the application must explain clearly how the research is related to NASA's mission.
Through four Scholarship/Fellowship programs, the VSGC awards approximately $300,000 annually to undergraduate and graduate students attending member universities and Virginia community colleges. Graduate Research Fellowships are $5,000 awards (renewable for one year) of add-on graduate support for U.S. citizens enrolled at a Virginia Space Grant university pursuing any field of graduate study in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) with aerospace relevance (Master’s or Doctoral level). Please visit the VSGC web site for more information and to apply.
