NASA Graduate Student Fellowships
Since 2002, Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) has offered a graduate student recruitment and fellowship program sponsored by the Earth-Sun Exploration Division at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).
Each year, NASA funds an assistantship in Computational Earth Science within the Center for Scientific Computation and Mathematical Modeling (CSCAMM). Typically students work on computational projects involving Atmospheric and Oceanic Modelling.
After the first year, the student's assistantship cost is split 50-50 between the university's Major Professor and a GSFC scientist serving as thesis co-advisor.
The graduate student is expected to work on problems of relevance to NASA/GSFC and do a portion of the thesis research at Goddard.
