Article Abstract

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has a robust program in Earth observing and Earth science research, including oceanography. For decades, the agency has supported graduate students through research grants and a dedicated graduate fellowship program. The core and the longest-active graduate student program is the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship geared to students in basic and applied research in Earth and space science. This article provides some history and context for NASA’s investment in oceanography graduate students, along with testimonials from some graduate fellowship recipients.
