NASA fellowships awarded to 12 ECU students

Ada —  

Twelve East Central University students were awarded funding under the NASA National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program for the 2012-2013 academic year.

These awards are competitive and applications are reviewed by a committee on campus. The awards are not discipline specific and students must meet required criteria and submit several forms for consideration.

One of the forms is an essay where students communicate to the committee evidence of creativity, initiative, motivation, and other characteristics indicative of the applicant’s potential as a scholar and contributor to society.

In addition, the students discuss specific interests and how these interests and their discipline relate to NASA’s overall mission. Students learn that all disciplines find space in NASA’s world.
