Student Assistance

As a student, you may request assistance with completing your application through NASA’s One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI). Assistance for the application is provided by four non-profit organizations also called Broker-Facilitators. 

Broker-Facilitators are Expert Non-Profit Advocacy Organizations for institutions of higher education (IHE) that implement recruitment, retention and career development strategies, as resources for information and provide assistance for students at the institution types, which include: Predominantly Black Institutions (including Historically Black Colleges and Universities); Hispanic Serving Institutions; Tribal Colleges and Universities; and Predominantly White Institutions.

Students, faculty and administrators at these institution types are encouraged to contact their Broker-Facilitator for more information about the OSSI. The four Broker-Facilitators are:
