New York Space Grant (NYSG) Opportunity Grants

Initiated in 2016-17, this new program provides up to $2,000 per grant to support New York primary, secondary, and post-secondary educators and higher education students in NASA-relevant science technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Funds may be used for activities that include but are not limited to the following: faculty collaboration with NASA researchers, payload space on launch vehicles, student research mentored by college faculty or professional scientists/engineers, travel to present at scientific/professional conferences or symposia, and participation in training/professional development. Grant applications will be reviewed and selected based on criteria such as the activity's relevance to NASA's mission, the breadth of its impact on science or aerospace technology in NY State, and anticipated impact of funding on the project or the recipient's academics, research, or teaching career.

Eligibility for grant recipients:
