WSU NASA Space Grant

Undergraduate Scholarships

The Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium offers scholarships for students in science, engineering, or math at Washington State University. These competitive scholarships are based on academic achievement, a personal essay, a recommendation from a faculty mentor, and future academic promise.

The WSU Space Grant scholarships are awarded to undergraduates who are conducting research under the tutelage of a WSU faculty mentor. This program is designed to encourage students to participate in supervised engineering and science research early in their academic careers.

Spring 2020

Scholarships of up to $1250 will be awarded in the 2020 spring semester. The Washington NASA Space Grant program values diversity and strongly encourages women and minorities to apply.


  • Be pursuing a degree within the College of Arts and Sciences or the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture. Previous years’ recipients are eligible to apply again.
  • Have a research project in a field broadly related to activities supported by NASA.
  • Have a faculty mentor who will supervise your research project during the duration of the scholarship period.
  • Be a U. S. citizen.

Recipients will be required to:

  • Submit a one page summary of the funded research and explain how it will help in your future academic work or career goals. This summary is due April 24, 2020.
  • If attending WSU Pullman in Spring 2021, submit an abstract to the 2021 WSU Showcase for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (SURCA) and, if accepted, create and display a poster at the symposium. The poster must acknowledge the funding received from the Washington NASA Space Grant.

Application deadline for Spring 2020 was February 15, 2020.


To complete the online application, you will need:

    • Your mentor’s name and email address.
    • The title or short description of your project.
    • A one-page Statement of Interest explaining your interest in an area of science or engineering broadly related to activities supported by NASA.

The WSU program will request a letter of recommendation from the faculty mentor named in the application.
