ASEE, in conjunction with the Universities Space Research
Association (USRA), is pleased to announce the NASA Faculty Fellowship
Program (FFP) for the summer of 2002. This 10-week summer research
residency provides an excellent opportunity for faculty to become involved
with research challenges important to NASA's strategic enterprises. The
primary objectives of the NASA Faculty Fellowship Program are to increase
the quality and quantity of research collaborations between NASA and the
academic community that contribute to NASA's research objectives and to
provide research opportunities for college and university faculty that
serve to enrich their knowledge base. The program is designed for U.S.
citizens with teaching or research appointments at U.S. universities or
colleges, preferably with a minimum of two years experience. College and
university faculty participants in the FFP can expect a rewarding pe!
rsonal as well as enriching professional experience.
A stipend of $1,200 per week will be paid for the duration of the program.
Travel and a relocation allowance will also be provided for those fellows
who must relocate their residence. Approximately 150 first-year
fellowships will be awarded. Applicants should be aware that no leave will
be granted during the short ten week tenure and that fellows are required
to conduct their research on-site. Faculty participants will be required
to submit a research report and provide program evaluation data at the end
of the summer period. Extended research opportunities may be available
for some faculty participants to continue research on-campus during the
