NASA awards $2.8M to Indiana space program

NASA has awarded the Indiana Space Grant Consortium, headquartered at Purdue University, a $2.8 million, four-year grant to support student and faculty learning projects.

The consortium, which moved to Purdue in 1991, helps launch interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics for students from elementary to graduate school.

Hosted at Purdue since 1991, the consortium is part of the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, a national network funded by NASA to inspire interest in STEM programs and build a diverse STEM workforce.

The grant will support NASA student internships and fellowships, student STEM experiences, faculty STEM projects and public STEM engagement throughout Indiana through 2024.
