THE NORTH DAKOTA SPACE GRANT CONSORTIUM COLLECTION
NASA initiated the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, also known as Space Grant, in 1989. This national network of colleges and universities works to expand opportunities for Americans to understand and participate in NASA's aeronautics and space projects by supporting and enhancing science and engineering education, research, and public engagement efforts.
The North Dakota NASA Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) was established in February of 1991. The North Dakota NASA Space Grant Consortium fulfills the Space Grant mission by involving North Dakota faculty, students, and K‐12 teachers and students in multi‐institutional, collaborative, NASA‐relevant research and education projects, while also educating the North Dakota citizenry about NASA, its purpose, and its missions.
The North Dakota Space Grant Consortium has a collection of printed posters, photos, and art available to the public. Pieces can be collected at the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium office (Clifford Hall, Room 270) on the UND campus.
