The Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium is a member institution of the national network of Space Grant Consortia funded by NASA’s National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. Congress established the program in 1988 to contribute to the nation’s scientific enterprise by funding research, education, and public service projects through a national network of 52 university-based Space Grant consortia.
The WSGC was created in 1991 as a part of this national network. WSGC is dedicated to using the excitement and vision of space science and aerospace science to equip the citizens of Wisconsin with the math, science, and technology tools they need to thrive in the next century. WSGC represents a powerful network of space and aerospace professionals, researchers, students, educators, and legislators, that has statewide and national reach.
