NASA Earth System Science Fellowships


NASA is now accepting applications for graduate student fellowships in Earth system science for the academic year. Applications will be considered for research in any of the six focus areas established by NASA's Earth Science Enterprise: climate variability and change; atmospheric composition; carbon cycle, ecosystems and biogeochemistry; water and energy cycle; weather; and Earth surface and interior. The purpose of the fellowship program is to ensure continued training of interdisciplinary scientists to support the study of Earth as a system. Awards are made initially for one year and may be renewed annually, based on satisfactory progress as reflected in academic performance and evaluations by the faculty advisor, for no more than two additional years.


Students admitted to, or already enrolled in, a full-time master's or doctorate program in Earth system science or related disciplines at accredited U.S. universities are eligible to apply.

Award Amount
