This is the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium's application form for the Lillian Goettler Scholarship. This application is only open to NDSU students and will close following our February 15th application deadline. 

This $2500 award, provided by NASA and the North Dakota Space Grant Program, honors the ideals of scholarship as exemplified by Dr. Lillian Goettler. Dr. Goettler, a former faculty member in Mechanical Engineering at NDSU, set a standard for women in her field. Dr. Goettler pursued her goals by earning a Ph.D. in 1974 and working overseas before joining the faculty at NDSU in 1978. Another important piece of Dr. Goettler’s legacy was her role as a founding member of Expanding Your Horizons, a program for junior high school girls to explore the fields of science and math.


Eligibility Criteria

  • Female or nonbinary student, majoring in science, math or engineering at NDSU
  • Show academic promise
  • Be enrolled as a full-time student (undergraduate and graduate students eligible)
  • Plans to continue with education and earn a Master’s or Ph.D.

This is the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium's application form for awarding NASA Internship funding. This application will close following our application deadlines, posted below.

      

STEP ONE: You must have already filled out an application at intern.nasa.gov. (Click the link to start your application)


STEP TWO: Fill out this Submittable form. After you fill out your NASA application, the NDSGC will be able to review all North Dakota-based student applications. We competitively select 6-8 ND students each summer (dependent on funding) to support. After selecting students internally, we will reach out to each NASA center's intern office and advocate for you. This does not guarantee you an internship; this makes your application more appealing to the center, as you would come with an existing funding source. Over the internship session, undergraduates will receive a stipend of $7,300; graduates will receive $9,000. Students will also receive a $500 travel stipend.

We encourage everyone to apply to up to 15 positions, as NASA allows. Please let us know if you have any questions at the email addresses below. 

NASA selects interns on a first-come-first-serve basis, so you may be contacted by a NASA mentor without us knowing. If this happens, please keep us updated as soon as possible so we can open up your potential slot to a different ND student. 


STEP 3: You will be able to edit this application at all times! Maintain your "top positions and centers" list to help us advocate for your top choices. Click the "edit submission" link at any time to make these updates.  


Application Deadlines:

  • Summer session: February 1st
  • Fall session: June 1st
  • Spring session: October 1st

Hello ND educators! This is the application form for NDSGC registration funding for the 100% virtual Space Exploration Educator's Conference (SEEC). In the past, the NDSGC has funded ND educators to travel to Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Now completely online, teachers will be able to attend remotely from their homes. This conference does offer PD credit for attendees.


Eligibility: Educators may be pre-service, in-service, or higher education faculty within Education/Teaching & Learning fields. Pre-service applicants must be enrolled in a North Dakota school; in-service applicants must teach in North Dakota. Applicants must be US citizens to receive NASA funding.


Evaluation: We hope to fund as many teachers as our budget can support. If we need to set a limit, we will assess all applications with the same rubric, looking at the quality of responses and impact for your students.  At that point, preference will be given to educators from rural communities and first-time attendees.   


If you have any questions, please contact Marissa at msaad@space.edu. Good luck!

What is Space Grant?

ND Space Grant is one of NASA's 52 consortia that focuses on connecting students to NASA and the STEM workforce. We enable research, internships, STEM Ambassadorships, scholarships, college teamwork (like rocket launches and rover racing!), and fun K-12 STEM activities.   

Check out our ND website here

Check out the National Space Grant page here

Check out other Space Grant logos here (search by consortium, then go to their website to see their logos)

NASA Colors


Before designing your logo, consider:

What does NASA mean to you? 

What makes North Dakota awesome and different from other states?

How does NASA in North Dakota help students? (#NASAinND)

How do you see yourself fitting into the STEM workforce?

What inspired you to create this logo?


We will ask you three questions at the end of the form:

1) How does your logo represent STEM in North Dakota?

2) What does NASA mean to you?

3) What inspired you to create this logo?



It’s that time of the year when we have to report all of our participation data to NASA and need your assistance. We are asking you to fill out the following survey, which will provide us with information used to send to NASA. This is for the last academic year, 2019-2020 (Fall 2019, Spring 2020, Summer 2020).

Your input will also help us while we create our annual newsletter, The Aurora. The last question is especially important, as it will be read by NASA personnel, North Dakota legislators, and University Administration (all who appreciate reading about the many accomplishments of North Dakota students, staff, faculty, and educators).

We also have an upload spot for a photo, which will be featured in the Aurora. It can be either a professional or non-professional ("for fun") portrait. Thanks!

Please complete this survey and send the photo by Dec. 9th. Please let us know if you have any questions, thank you!

Thank you for representing NASA in North Dakota. Whether you are a current student, competition team member, or alumna/us, we would love to share your dedication to ND to our stakeholders. 

This form will ask you about any social media accounts, allow you to upload images, and provide future students with a preferred quote or message.


Audience

Our audience will be students (K-12 & higher education), pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, and higher education faculty. Prospective students and ND stakeholders, such as university and congressional staff, may also view these posts.  Your information may be shared on the NDSGC pages, as well as national NASA-related platforms. 


Please contact marissa.saad@und.edu or caitlin.nolby@und.edu with any questions.

To promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) across North Dakota, the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) established the STEM Ambassador program. STEM Ambassadors are undergraduate and graduate STEM students that conduct hands-on activities with North Dakota students, families, and communities. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the need for social distancing, we are now offering STEM Ambassador virtual visits.

Please complete this form if you would like to have a STEM Ambassador chat with your K-12 classroom. The goal of these visits is to encourage communication and cultivate curiosity in the fields of STEM. 

Teachers must submit at least 7 questions for the STEM Ambassadors to answer and discuss during the virtual visit, as we want our STEM Ambassadors to be prepared for classroom conversation. 

We envision our STEM Ambassadors connecting with your classroom via Zoom and chatting about previously submitted questions. If you have a vision on how you want a STEM Ambassador visit to happen, let us know!

NDSGC will contact you, after your submission, to set a time and date for the visit.

Would your student or class like to have a STEM pen pal? 

The North Dakota Space Grant Consortium STEM Pal program allows students to submit a letter to a STEM Ambassador. The goal of STEM Pals is to encourage communication and cultivate curiosity in the fields of STEM. "Letters" can be in the form of a paper letter, an email, a voice memo, or a hand-drawn picture. Students can ask a STEM Ambassador any questions they may have about Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, or college life as a STEM student. 

Please fill out the form below to begin correspondence.
