The Oklahoma Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) Vision
OSGC represents a statewide partnership of universities, a cooperative extension service, state government, city government, industry, and a major science museum working to enhance opportunities for Oklahomans to understand and participate in NASA's mission directorates by supporting programs in science, mathematics, engineering, technology, education, geography, and other aeronautics and space related disciplines throughout the state.
What is the OSGC?
In 1988, Congress passed the National Space Grant Act to establish a National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. NASA accepted the Congressional mandate to manage this higher education program, designed to provide activities that increase the understanding, assessment, development, and utilization of aerospace resources and to expand the educational, scientific, and research base of all aerospace-related fields. The Oklahoma Space Grant Consortium is one of 52 consortia (representing every state, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia).
What does the OSGC do?
The OSGC supports endeavors throughout the State of Oklahoma that are related to NASA's mission. This is accomplished through...
  • providing support for promising students, professors, and research in aerospace-related fields;
  • sponsoring internships for affiliate university students to NASA Centers and other aerospace-related institutions;
  • inspiring and training current and future educators to use aerospace-related materials to achieve educational objectives in the classroom; and
  • creating, organizing, conducting, and financially supporting programs for Oklahomans to better understand NASA's work.
