The Maine Space Grant Consortium supports education and research programs for researchers at our affiliate non-profit research laboratories and higher education institutions. Our goals are to:
- Strengthen the Affiliate’s STEM research capacity in areas mutually beneficial to NASA and Maine
- Increase participation of Maine undergraduate and graduate students in STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) research conducted by the Affiliates and NASA field centers
NASA research priorities are defined by the Mission Directorates (Aeronautics Research, Human Exploration & Operations, Science, and Space Technology), and NASA’s ten Centers. Each Mission Directorate and Center covers a major area of the Agency’s research and technology development efforts.
Researchers proposing to our programs should download and review MSGC Grant proposal guidelines. A summary of NASA research priorities for each of the Mission Directorates and NASA Centers are included in these guidelines.
