CMU JOINS MICHIGAN SPACE GRANT CONSORTIUM
After presenting to the board, CMU was unanimously approved to join the consortium participating in NASA projects.
Central Michigan University was approved to join the Michigan Space Grant Consortium (MSGC). The MSGC’s mission is to “create, develop, and promote programs that reflect NASA’s strategic interests and support cooperation between academia, industry, state, and local government in science and technology in Michigan.”
With the University of Michigan as the lead, a consortium of 12 Michigan universities participates in NASA’s projects and offers a variety of funding opportunities to support student and faculty lead research projects, as well as fellowships, internships, and educational programs. Additionally, a conference is held each year to showcase the outcomes of the new research developed through the consortium’s funding.
