Thank you!

This form is for Space Studies/Aerospace Science students who will be receiving a North Dakota Space Grant (NDSGC)-funded Graduate Assistantship (GA) award.

Congratulations on your GA award! Because this funding is provided to us by NASA, we must comply with the NASA reporting requirements every year. To do so, we'll need important demographic and academic information from you. We thank you for your time, as your efforts ensure the longevity of our program and allow future students to experience the same funding opportunities that you received.

Travel Grant Application

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, each travel grant will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Ongoing communication up to the day of the event will be expected to ensure all COVID-19 guidelines are followed. Each travel grant applicant will abide by their home institution’s in-person event and travel guidelines.

Students may apply for both in-person events (you must be actively participating) and/or virtual events (you can be passively engaged as an audience member). 


Please read:

The North Dakota Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) will sponsor North Dakota students (undergraduate and graduate students) to travel to a conference, hands-on workshop, or other academic or professional development event pre-approved by the NDSGC. Students can receive awards of up to $1,000. Applications are due at least two weeks before your conference or workshop. Travel grant funding is awarded competitively and all applications are assessed individually.

All travel grant recipients must submit a post-event report (you will receive a Submittable form from the NDSGC team) and upload an image of them attending their event. The NDSGC will use this information in the annual reporting back to NASA.

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.

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
  • Minimum GPA of 3.5
  • American citizen
  • Student majoring in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics) field at North Dakota State University

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


For prospective Industry Interns only: 

The NDSGC encourages you to reach out to our team to discuss your individual situation. All students must fill out this Submittable form to be considered for internship funding. Students pursuing an industry internship do not have to complete the steps outlined below for the NASA internships (which are hosted by NASA Centers). Please contact the NDSGC team if you have any questions.


For prospective NASA interns only:

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. 

Students are eligible to apply for the spring and fall semesters; funding will be more competitive because we dedicate the majority for summer applications.

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.  


For all students:

Application Deadlines:

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

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 to use in this year's edition of the Aurora. This is for the last academic year, 2020-2021 (Fall 2020, Spring 2021, Summer 2021).

The quote portion of this form is especially important, as it may 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 as soon as you can. Please let us know if you have any questions, thank you!
