Faculty Opportunities

WSGC offers seed grant opportunities to researchers and individuals seeking to incorporate aerospace components into their curriculum. We also offer funding for joint Academic/Industry research.

The links to the left provide information about the different opportunities available through WSGC.


All submitted proposals must align with the goals and objectives of the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. To see the National Space Grant Strategic Plan, click here.

Additionally, by NASA requirement, every proposal funded through the WSGC must clearly demonstrate how its activities align with the goals of one or more NASA Directorates and/or Centers. Partnering with NASA Centers where appropriate is also strongly encouraged. For an overview of the goals of the NASA Directorates, click here.
