Welcome and thanks for visiting the District of Columbia Space Grant Consortium’s (DCSGC’s) website. We are one of 52 members of the NASA-funded National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. DCSGC’s mission is to expand opportunities for those in the District of Columbia to discover, explore, experience, and be involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Our goal is to increase the strength and diversity of the future scientific and engineering workforce for the good of NASA and the entire nation.

DCSGC, through its many affiliates, offers diverse programs that are consistent with our mission. These include undergraduate and graduate fellowships, scholarships and internships that put students at the forefront of scientific and engineering research and discovery. We also promote science and technology to pre-college students through public outreach activities, as well as through professional development opportunities for K-12 teachers.

We encourage you to explore our website to find programs that are available to you, and hope that you will take advantage of the ones that are.
