The National Community College Aerospace Scholars program is designed specifically for community college students across the U.S. who are interested in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Selected participants gain access to an interactive, online learning experience where they complete Web-based lessons. Participants also travel to NASA for a three-day experience where they work with NASA engineers and scientists developing a proposal for a fictitious Martian rover. The only cost to applicants is a $30 registration fee. Travel costs, food and lodging are covered by NASA.
Applications are available online and must be submitted by Dec. 9, 2010.
