The Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium (HSGC) expands educational opportunities for University of Hawai‘i undergraduates by awarding fellowships and traineeships in fields that are relevant to NASA’s goals. Two levels of support, fellowship or traineeship, are offered depending on the skill, knowledge level, and time commitment of the student. We support the national Space Grant agenda to help prepare the future generation of space scientists and engineers, and to increase the understanding and development of space. U.S. citizenship is required for consideration as a fellow or trainee.
Fields relevant to NASA’s goals are mainly those in science, technology, engineering, math, and education that are focused on studying the Earth from space, exploring our Solar System and the universe beyond, understanding the potential for life elsewhere, understanding how life responds to space, creating a more secure, efficient, and environmentally friendly air transportation system, inspiring students to pursue careers in science, technology, and mathematics, and engaging the public in shaping and sharing the experience of space exploration and discovery.
