Aeronautics NASA Scholarship for Aeronautical Engineering Program

Aeronautic NASA Scholarship for Aeronautical Engineering Programs

NASA Scholarships

If you are currently enrolled in college, in an Aeronautical Engineering Program, or you soon intend to be, you should consider and research the Aeronautics NASA Scholarship Program to help pay for your education. Among all NASA scholarships that are awarded for specific fields of study, these types of NASA Aeronautics scholarships award the highest amount of funds to help pay for the expense of the education that you are receiving. They are the best scholarships in terms of monetary stipend.

Each year, the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate awards Aeronautics NASA Scholarships to five graduate students, and 20 undergraduate students who are studying in the field of aeronautics or fields that relate to aeronautics. If you are an undergraduate in your second year of school, you can receive up to $15,000 for the next two years of your education, as well as an internship for the summer, which comes with a $10,000 NASA stipend.

Graduate students receive a $35,000 stipend, $11,000 for three years, and have the advantage of two summers of internship at NASA, with each internship period paying $10,000, for a total of $20,000. This means that in total, for undergraduate students, the total scholarship is approximately $40,000, and for graduate students, the total NASA scholarship award is approximately $88,000. These funds can be used for any expenses related to your education.

If you are not currently enrolled in an aeronautics program of study, you can still apply for these aeronautical scholarships. If you win an aeronautics scholarship, you must be admitted to an approved field of study by the fall after you win the award. You must also be attending a school accredited in the United States and be a citizen of the United States. The student must also show that there is a financial need in order to be considered, and must continue to prove this need each semester. You must also take the GRE exam, and have your scores submitted with your application.

Fields of study that are approved for the Aeronautics NASA Scholarships include electrical, energy and electronic fields, Aeronautical and Aerospace fields, and Engineering fields that include chemical engineering, computer engineering, civil engineering, materials engineering, systems engineering, industrial engineering, engineering science, and engineering mechanics, and studies in the fields of metallurgical and polymer. Computer science and physics under the mathematics field will also be considered.

A student who wins this award can opt not to participate in the summer internships if they so choose, however, if this is the choice that they make, they will not be eligible for the $10,000 stipend for those internships. Applications must be received between September and January, and awards are announced in April for the following fall semester, and all applications must be submitted online – hard copies are not accepted.

Aeronautics is a very exciting and lucrative field, but the cost of the education required for this field is very expensive. You should definitely apply for the Aeronautics NASA Scholarship as well as any other college scholarships that you are eligible for to help with these costs. Of course, the added opportunity to work for NASA at the NASA Center is also something to consider and is a ‘one of a kind’ experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else.

    do you consider Kenyan students undertaking aeronautical engineering.

  2. FRANCIS,

    I would direct your question to the sponsor of this award – NASA. Have you looked into bursaries – your own government bursary programs?
