NASA offers fellowships for undergraduate as well as graduate students. All fellowship information is available here.
The NASA Education Aeronautics Scholarship and Advanced STEM Training and Research (AS&ASTAR) Fellowship activity provides fellowship and graduate scholarship awards for individuals pursuing or planning to pursue graduate studies leading to master's and doctoral degrees in relevant NASA-related disciplines at accredited U.S. universities. This year’s solicitation is available here. This is a wonderful opportunity for a graduate student to have their whole study program funded – including all fees and a living stipend, and also a small stipend for the advising faculty.
Specific research areas are listed in the solicitation. The proposal must include information regarding how the student/faculty will interact with NASA researchers on the proposed research. Typically, the student is expected to spend some time at the NASA center which funds the proposal.
The deadline for proposals is February 24, 2017.
