OAI programs afford opportunities to university faculty to expand and share their knowledge. Through NASA Summer Faculty Research Opportunities (NSFRO), university faculty members from across the United States come to Cleveland to participate in research at NASA Glenn Research Center.
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 cutting-edge research at one of the participating NASA Centers or the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). NSFRO research experiences support America’s Civil Aeronautics and Space Program including NASA’s exploration, science, space operations, and aeronautics missions.
Each fellowship recipient will work on collaborative research projects of mutual interest to the fellow and their colleague from the NASA center or JPL.
The NASA Summer Faculty Research Opportunities Program is jointly administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) and the Universities Space Research Association (USRA). At NASA Glenn Research Center, OAI co-manages this program for the Office of University Programs.
NASA John Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio will offer a 2010 Summer Faculty Fellowship Program for qualified faculty in accredited US colleges and university, starting on Monday, June 7 for 10 continuous weeks (6/7/10 - 8/13/10).
