The Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium sponsors education and research programs in the state of Wyoming in support of NASA missions, serving as a link between citizens of the state and NASA programs. It is one of 52 consortia representing each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
Our programs include research fellowships and internships for students at the University of Wyoming and Wyoming community colleges, scholarship programs for community college students in STEM majors, grants for college and university faculty, and educational resources and programs for Wyoming K-12 students and teachers.
The Wyoming NASA Space Grant goals are as follows:
- Promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education from elementary through university levels
- Enhance science and engineering research infrastructure in Wyoming
- Recruit women and underrepresented students for careers in math, science, and engineering
- Enhance public awareness of the benefits of research and exploration.
