Undergraduate Scholarship Awardees


VSGC is funded by NASA’s National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. The recipients are recognized for their outstanding achievement as a scholar. The purpose of this program is to establish a national network of universities with interests in aeronautics, space, and related fields; to encourage cooperation among universities, aerospace industry, and government; to encourage interdisciplinary training, research, and public service programs related to aerospace; to recruit and train professionals for careers in aerospace science; and to promote a strong science, mathematics, engineering, and technology educational base from elementary through university levels.
