2014 NASA EONS Solicitation

NASA's Office of Education is accepting new proposals under the Education Opportunities in NASA STEM (EONS) 2014 NASA Research Announcement for the NASA Office of Education MUREP Advanced STEM Training and Research (ASTAR) Fellowships appendix. NASA Office of Education Fellowships support independently conceived or designed research, or senior design projects for graduate students in disciplines needed to help advance NASA's missions. ASTAR fellowships provides awards for individuals, early in their graduate studies, pursuing or planning to pursue graduate studies leading to Masters and Doctoral degrees in relevant NASA-related disciplines at accredited U.S. universities. The fellowship award includes tuition offset, student stipend, and funding for an annual Center Based Research Experience (CBRE), resulting in an annual award of up to $50,000 for a student pursuing a Masters' degree/ $55,000 for a student pursuing a Doctoral degree. Fellowships awards are made in the form of training grants to academic institutions and are for a duration of no more than three academic years. Proposals are due May 4, 2015.

NASA Glenn Faculty Fellowship Program (NGFFP) 2015 - NGFFP/15-1

NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC), Cleveland, Ohio

Application for the 2015 NGFFP opens on Friday, December 19, 2014 and closes on Monday, February 23, 2015.

Program Description

The ten-week 2015 NASA Glenn Faculty Fellowship Program (NGFFP) is open to full-time STEM faculty members who are US citizens teaching at accredited U.S. universities and colleges. The NGFFP will be offered at NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) in Cleveland, Ohio, from Monday, June 1, through Friday, Aug. 7, 2015. Proposed faculty work must be aligned with the needs of GRC, and have a high probability to contribute towards advancing the NASA mission. The NGFFP aims at providing the following mutual benefits: (1) Enhance faculty professional knowledge through their engagement in relevant and cutting-edge research at GRC; (2) Stimulate exchange of ideas between faculty and GRC researchers and engineers; (3) Enrich and refresh the research and teaching at US academic institutions by infusing NASA mission-related research and technology content into classroom teaching; and (4) Contribute complementarily to in-house research, technology and engineering work packages and objectives of GRC, towards advancing the NASA mission.

Glenn Research Center

GRC is distinguished by its unique blend of aeronautics and space flight experience. The Center's world-class research outcomes and technological advancements encompass space flight systems development; In-Space Propulsion Systems and Cryogenic Fluids Management; Power, Energy Storage and Conversion; Air-Breathing Propulsion; Physical Science and Biomedical Technologies in Space; Materials & Structures for Extreme Environments; and Communication Technology and Development. The main campus of GRC is adjacent to the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, and has 140 buildings, 24 major facilities and more than 500 specialized research and test facilities. A satellite campus of GRC is Plum Brook Station which is located 50 miles west of Cleveland. The 6,400 acre Station offers four large world-class facilities for space technology and capability testing for NASA's mission and major programs.

As a designated NASA lead Center for Air-Breathing Propulsion from subsonic to hypersonic speed, GRC's role is to develop, verify, and transfer Air-Breathing Propulsion technologies to U.S. industry. GRC is, also, a designated Center of Excellence in Turbomachinery, whereby it develops new and innovative turbomachinery technology to improve the reliability and performance, efficiency and affordability, capacity and environmental compatibility of future aeronautical and space propulsion systems. Other GRC primary areas of expertise include a broad array of research, technology and engineering development efforts in aerospace power, space electronics, launch and exploration vehicles, and space processes and experiments which include combustion and reacting systems, and fluid physics and transport.

Additionally, GRC is engaged in technology development in advanced energy, including renewable wind, solar and coal energy. Some of several energy-related demonstration projects focus on testing, evaluation and advancement of wind turbines, fuel cells and photovoltaics.
