Scholarship Description

Scholarship for full-time summer study. Students are expected to devote 75 percent of their time to a research project with a faculty adviser and 25 percent to outreach activities in science education for K-12 students and teachers. Must attend a Rhode Island Space Grant Consortium participating school.

Academic Year Scholars work the majority of their time on their studies and research in conjunction with their degree program. They are also a part of a larger group of undergraduates, graduate students, and Research Associates who participate in outreach programs for K-12 teachers and their students, as well as for the general public. Space Grant science education outreach activity and preparation are expected to encompass a small amount of your time and are requirements of the award. Summer awardees spend all of their time on their independent research project with their science adviser. They will also be invited to join us at the RI Space Grant Spring Symposium usually held in April.
