NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) Program - Call for Proposals
NASA announces a call for graduate fellowship proposals to the NASA
Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) program for the 2010-2011
academic year. This call for fellowship proposals solicits
applications from accredited U.S. universities on behalf of
individuals pursuing Master of Science (M.Sc.) or Doctoral (Ph.D.)
degrees in Earth and space sciences, or related disciplines. The

qualified workforce in disciplines needed to achieve NASA's
scientific goals. Awards resulting from the competitive selection
will be made in the form of training grants to the respective universities.
The deadline for NEW applications is February 1, 2010, and the
