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.
