Home > Press > NASA Awards Education Research Grants to Minority Universities

Abstract:
NASA's Office of Education is awarding research grants totaling nearly $35 million to seven
minority institutions.

The goal of NASA's Minority University Research and Education Program
is to establish significant, multi-disciplinary scientific, engineering and
commercial research centers at the host universities that contribute
substantially to NASA programs. The awards will help to achieve a broad
based, competitive aerospace research and technology development capability
among the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Other
Minority Universities.

NASA Awards Education Research Grants to Minority Universities

Washington, DC | Posted on September 9th, 2008

The grants also will help increase participation by faculty and
students of selected colleges and universities in the research programs of
NASA's mission directorates, and increase the number of underrepresented
minorities who obtain advanced degrees in NASA-related fields. Each
university will receive up to $1 million per year for a maximum of five
years based on performance and availability of funds. NASA's Office of
Education intends to issue a cooperative agreement notice for the
University Research Center project in the coming fiscal year.

The university organizations selected to receive awards are:

-- NASA University Research Center SPACE Center, California State
University, Los Angeles

-- WaterSCAPES: Science of Coupled Aquatic Processes in Ecosystems from
Space, Florida International University, Miami

-- Howard University Beltsville Center for Climate System Observation,
Howard University, Washington

-- Center of Excellence in Systems Engineering for Space Exploration
Technologies, Morgan State University, Baltimore

-- The Center for Radiation Engineering and Science for Space
Exploration, Prairie View A & M University, Prairie View, Texas

-- Center for Bio-Nanotechnology and Environmental Research, Texas
Southern University, Houston

-- Center for Advanced Nanoscale Materials II, University of Puerto
Rico, Rio Piedras Campus, San Juan
