NASA Guam Space Grant
NASA Guam Space Grant (NGSG) is our island's local connection to NASA and the universe beyond. We are a proud affiliate of the University of Hawai’i Space Grant Consortium (HSGC), which participates in the National Space Grant College and Fellowship program and administers the University Research Internship (URI) program.
NGSG aims to inspire and train future generations of professionals in areas concerned with the understanding, utilization, exploration, and investigation of both space and earth, which includes our regional island environments, through research and internships. The program is housed within the Micronesia Area Research Center at the University of Guam and supports educational initiatives that focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as they support NASA’s missions.
Our program offers educational opportunities for University of Guam undergraduates and graduates by awarding Space Grant Internships and Fellowships in fields that are relevant to NASA's goals.
A significant goal of the NASA Guam Space Grant program is to encourage interdisciplinary studies and research and to train future generations of space scientists and engineers.
Fields relevant to NASA’s goals are mainly those in science, technology, and education
focused on understanding the Earth, exploring the Solar System and the universe beyond,
creating more secure, efficient, and environmentally friendly air
transportation systems, inspiring students to pursue careers in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology, and engaging the public in shaping and sharing the experience of exploration and discovery.
The 12 students passed the FAA exam this semester and are now earning flight hours.
Researchers and faculty are invited to attend an information session at 3 p.m. on Dec. 10.
Applications are now being accepted for teaching or research internships with NASA Guam Space Grant.
The inaugural cohort of the UOG Drone Corps began the three-week training program on July 26.
