Collaboration With Minority Serving Institutions Program (CMSI)

Under the suite of Space Grant Research Infrastructure Programs is our Collaboration with Minority Serving Institutions Program (CMSI).

The goal of this program is to seed meaningful research partnerships between MSGC Affiliates, Minority Serving Institutions (MSI), and one or more NASA Centers. CMSI supports research internships for MSI students at Maine institutions; direct graduating MSI students to Maine institutions for graduate schools; mentors MSI students; research collaborations and exchanges between Maine and MSI faculty during the academic year or summer; seminars or workshops on topics of mutual interest; and joint travel to NASA centers to explore joint collaborative research opportunities

Our 2019-2020 Collaboration with Minority Serving Institutions Program is OPEN!
