2005 ONR Summer Faculty Research Program

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsors a Summer Faculty Research Program for U.S. citizens who hold teaching or research appointments at U.S. colleges and universities. These programs provide an opportunity for science and engineering faculty members to participate in research of mutual interest to the faculty member and professional peers at U.S. Navy laboratories.

The Summer Faculty Research Program is a 10 week program which, beginning each May. There are three levels of appointment: Summer Faculty Fellow, Senior Summer Faculty Fellow, and Distinguished Summer Faculty Fellow. Stipends for the 2005 program range from $1,400 to $1,900 per week for the summer program. Each Fellow will be reimbursed for expenses incurred on an optional pre-program visit to the sponsoring laboratory. Relocation assistance is provided to qualifying Fellows.

I would encourage you, if you have not already, to take a look at what the program has to offer and then apply so you may have an astounding summer of research. The deadline to apply for this year's program is December 1, 2004. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me. If you would like to read more about the program you may go to our website www.asee.org/navy">http://www.asee.org/navy>www.asee.org/navy.

Happy Applying!!

NASA Summer Faculty Research Opportunities (NSFRO)

The intent of the NASA Summer Faculty Research Opportunities (NSFRO) is to provide faculty, who have limited NASA research experience, an opportunity to engage in research at one of the participating NASA Centers or the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). NSFRO research experiences support the new space exploration vision for America’s Civil Space Program—a return to the Moon, missions to Mars, and journeys beyond, including NASA's exploration, science, space operations, and aeronautics research missions.

The participation of fellows can be funded three different ways:

NASA Office of Education, Higher Education Division has expanded two of its current research based programs to incorporate summer faculty research opportunities in summer 2005. The two sponsoring programs are:

* The Faculty Awards for Research (FAR)
The FAR Program is an essential part of a portfolio of programs implemented by the NASA Office of Education, Higher Education Division to support the White House Initiatives for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) collectively referred to as Minority Institutions (MIs). Since 1992, the FAR program has been instrumental in jumpstarting research careers for faculty at minority institutions. The NSFRO will replace the FAR Planning Grant Awards previously available through the FAR program.

* The National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program (Space Grant)
The Space Grant Program funds education, research, and public service programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico through 52 university-based Space Grant consortia. Space Grant programs emphasize the diversity of human resources, the participation of students in research, and the communication of the benefits of scientific discoveries to the general public. Space Grant consortia also fund curriculum enhancement and faculty development programs.

* Center funding will also support qualified applicants from any accredited two- or four-year college or university.

Although the participation of a fellow can be funded three different ways this does not affect the way fellows apply through this program. All applicants are required to fill out the online application.

Any selected faculty and corresponding NASA colleague interested in adding a student to the team must provide the necessary funds and office space. Students are selected by the faculty and the NASA colleague and cannot apply to this program.

Fellowships are awarded to qualified faculty members in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) disciplines for work on collaborative research projects of mutual interest to the fellow and the NASA center or JPL. Each fellow will work with a colleague from the NASA Center or JPL.

The NASA Summer Faculty Research Opportunities is jointly administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) and the Universities Space Research Association (USRA).

Please Note: Only U. S. citizens are eligible to apply!
