Welcome to the MnSGC Web Site

Welcome! The Minnesota Space Grant Consortium (MnSGC) is part of the NASA Funded National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program established by Congress in 1988. Nationally, Space Grant is a network of 52 university-based statewide consortia (all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) with nearly 1000 affiliates. Space Grant provides state-based pre-college education, higher educational research opportunities for faculty and students, and public service activities related to aerospace science and engineering. The mission of the MnSGC is to provide a driving force for aerospace education in Minnesota. Program goals and objectives include diversity, competitiveness coupled with accessibility, ties with NASA Centers and enterprises, and relationships with industry and state government. The MnSGC supports a variety of projects including pre-college activities in math and science, college student research, program development, and fellowships and scholarships for students at its 13 academic affiliate institutions of higher learning, and public outreach. Between 1997 and 2012, the MnSGC awarded over 800 scholarships to college students in Minnesota and has supported numerous projects and programs involving students at all levels, from K-12 through graduate school. There are many ways in which you may participate in the MnSGC. In our website you will find information on scholarships, internships, academic programs, links to NASA and to the other state Space Grant Consortia, and a variety of other information. We welcome your questions and comments.

Sincerely, Demoz Gebre-Egziabher

Director of the Minnesota Space Grant Consortium and Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Minnesota
