Please read the following message before completing your research funding request:

This is the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium's application form for requesting funds to conduct independent research. All funds are distributed on a competitive basis and released depending on the current fiscal year's budget. The maximum award for each individual is $1,000. 


From our website:

Mini-grants are available for undergraduate and graduate students who are completing STEM- or NASA-relevant research that directly affects their thesis or dissertation. All students who meet this criteria are eligible to apply. These mini-grants will be awarded each semester and may include materials funding. All funds will be distributed on a competitive basis and released depending on the current fiscal year's budget. The maximum award for each individual is $1,000. Students requiring only travel expenses are encouraged to consider the NDSGC Travel Grants. Students who have already completed research through the NDSGC (having earned a fellowship, mini-grant, or internship) are eligible to apply for the NDSGC to cover publication fees under this program. 


Students: In the form, you will need to request a "statement of support" from your faculty advisor/mentor. This is NOT a letter of recommendation, but instead, a 1-2 sentence endorsement letting us know your advisor is aware and supports your requests. Please give your advisor advance notice. Please contact us if you have any questions about this.
