LaSPACE Senior Design Program

The Senior Design Project Support Program is meant to offer supplemental funding in support of high-level student-led research and design projects conducted under the auspices of a formal Senior Design or Capstone Course. Projects must show clear relevance to NASA’s mission and ongoing research at one or more of the NASA centers and be clearly aligned with research under the umbrella of one or more of the four mission directorates. This funding source is meant to supplement the cost of materials and supplies and/or travel for competitions related to such formally established senior design projects/courses. Award funds can be requested up to $4000; no strict cost-match is required, but some institutional investment will impact our evaluation.
