STRATEGIC PREPAREDNESS ADVANCING CAREERS IN ENGINEERING/SCIENCES

A program funded by the National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA)

 

Since 1989, Morehouse College students have had their academic careers launched through the Project S.P.A.C.E. program.  Thanks to a grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the program has provided scholarship support for more than 300 students.  The program started in 1989 with a 1.5 million dollar grant from NASA.

The project SPACE program provides much more than academic and financial support; it also builds relationships and connects students to opportunities.  Previous scholars have developed relationships with NASA centers and lasting friendships with other scholars.
