Virginia Space Grant Consortium Scholarship

Dear University of Virginia SEAS Students,

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

Thanks,

Christopher P. Goyne, Ph.D.

Database of the Week: Aerospace & High Technology Database

The Aerospace & High Technology Database — part of the CSA Illumina suite of databases — provides aerospace engineering students and faculty a window into the journal, conference and other technical literature central to their fields.  It provides bibliographic coverage of basic and applied research in aeronautics, astronautics, and space sciences, as well as complementary and supporting fields.  In addition to periodical literature from over 3,000 sources, the database also includes coverage of reports issued by NASA, other U.S. government agencies, international institutions, universities, and private firms. This database provides comprehensive international coverage as well as numerous non-serial publications.  You can learn more about this database from its Factsheet or begin searching the database at CSA Illumina.

The Aerospace & High Technology Database is one of many information resources brought to you by the Brown Science and Engineering Library!  Ask for a demonstration of this database or about other resources that can help you work faster, smarter and better!

(Use of this database from this address restricted to University of Virginia users only.  Please contact a librarian for assistance, if you are having trouble connecting.)

One Small Step… Remembered

The Apollo Space Program and NASA’s efforts to put a man on the moon culminated in the landing of the Apollo 11 lunar module on the Sea of Tranquility on July 20, 1969.  This site from NASA commemorates the 40th anniversary of that event with photos, interviews, mission highlights and more.
