A 12-month budget, not to exceed $37,000 total, must be prepared and should include the following:
|NASA Extramural Experience||An extramural NASA experience is required sometime during the fellowship year. The details are to be worked out with the faculty advisor and
NASA lab facility where the student plans to participate in a research activity. It is advisable that a NASA contact be found prior to submission of the fellowship proposal.
In 400 words or less, please describe the extramural NASA experience that you plan to participate in. Names and locations of NASA field centers are: Ames Research Center - CA, Armstrong Flight Research Center - CA, Glenn Research Center - OH, Goddard Space Flight Center - MD,
