Virginia Space Grant Consortium 2012-13 Graduate STEM Research Fellowship Program

The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) Graduate Research STEM Fellowship Program provides fellowships of $5,000 in add-on support to graduate students to supplement and enhance basic research support. Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a program of study in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) and have a specific faculty-mentored research project that has NASA or aerospace relevance.

The purpose of the VSGC Graduate STEM Rresearch Fellowship program is to encourage talented individuals to pursue careers in the aerospace industry that support NASA’s mission. Awardees will be required to certify through their academic department that basic research support of at least $5,000 in matching funds is also being provided before funds are released. These Fellowships are intended to enhance basic graduate support such as graduate research assistantships, graduate teaching assistantships, and non-federal scholarships and fellowships.

Graduate Research Fellowships require that students participate in an active faculty-mentored research experience that aligns with the aerospace sector and meets NASA’s mission.   Awards are made annually and are renewable for one year for students making satisfactory academic and research progress. This is a competitive fellowship program and awards are based on merit recognizing high academic achievement and promise.

Eligibility

  • Must be a U.S. citizen
  • Must be enrolled as a full-time graduate student at one of the Virginia Space Grant Consortium member institutions
  • May apply prior to entering or anytime during your graduate program
  • Must be in a program of study demonstrating an interest in aerospace or supporting NASA’s mission
  • Must have a grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale

Since an important purpose of this program is to increase the participation of underrepresented minorities, females, and persons with disabilities in aerospace-related careers, the VSGC especially encourages applications from these students.

Graduate Student Research Skills Workshop — Copyright Essentials

Graduate Student Research Skills Workshop

Tuesday, Feb. 7, 3:30-5, Rice Hall Auditorium (Room 130 Rice Hall)

University of Virginia

Please join your fellow SEAS graduate students in this, the inaugural, Research Skills Workshop.  The topic—-Copyright Essentials.

With the Engineering School’s implementation in 2012 of a new digital-only deposit program for master’s theses and dissertations,  Engineering graduate students must address enhanced responsibilities for copyright, grants compliance, and other traditional author’s issues of privacy, defamation, and related concerns. Students will be required to sign a formal deposit license with the University Library as part of their degree completion process, and all theses and dissertations will be available worldwide.  Good advance planning and awareness of key copyright and other legal requirements are more essential than ever before. Madelyn Wessel from the Office of General Counsel will be here to talk about the library deposit license and the new Copyright Essentials materials that have been prepared to assist Engineering School students with this new program.  Some of the ways students can protect and share their scholarly and research works via Creative Commons and Open Source licensing, and other author’s rights issues will also be discussed.  The workshop will provide ample opportunities for Q & A.

Look for future announcements and other opportunities to learn and enhance your research skills in this new, monthly workshop series for the entire SEAS Community of Scholars.

The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) will be holding an information session for upcoming student scholarship and fellowship opportunities. VSGC offers Undergraduate Research Scholarships of up to $8,500 and Graduate Research Fellowships of $5,000 (renewable for one year). The Undergraduate Scholarships can be combined with summer research or an intern position in a lab. These awards look great on your resume if you are applying for a job or to graduate school and SEAS students have a good track record of receiving awards each year, so I encourage to you to attend. Your studies or research needs to be in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) fields and some how related to NASA’s Mission (even if it is a stretch). The awards are only open to U.S. Citizens.

The information session will be in MEC 215 on Tuesday, October 18, 2011, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m and there will be free pizza and soft drinks. Please RSVP to jdotzaue@odu.edu
