A major goal of the NC Space Grant Consortium is to help produce the engineers and scientists of the future. While opportunities for careers in aerospace have expanded, the number of talented students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) has declined. The NC Space Grant Undergraduate Scholarship Program is a competitive scholarship program funded by NASA.
