Love space? Get paid to study, research, or launch rockets!

January 18, 2016

Whether you’re already studying space or have a research project in mind, the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium has a paid opportunity for you to get experience doing what you love. Check out these three awesome opportunities for undergraduate students:

  • Interested in designing, building, or launching a balloon payload? This summer, get paid to join a high-altitude balloon project, Elijah, on the Milwaukee School of Engineering campus. No previous experience is necessary. You just have to be willing to work with a team. Awards up to $3,000 for launch team and $4,000 for payload teams.
  • Pursuing aerospace, space science, or interdisciplinary space-related studies or research? The Undergraduate Scholarship Program is for you! Be a part of the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium network as you study something you love. Awards up to $2,000.
  • Have a research project in mind? The Undergraduate Research Program gives financial awards to help students pursue a small research study of their own design in space science, aerospace, or space-related studies. Awards up to $4,000.

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.
