The Nevada NASA Space Grant is offered by the Nevada Community College Consortium (NCCC). The NCCC was developed by the Nevada NASA Space Grant Consortium (NVSGC) to provide scholarships which are competitively awarded to support and reward Nevada students for their achievements in academic endeavors related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics. NVSGC support can assist NSHE undergraduate students in pursuing their educational goals that will lead to employment opportunities in industries that rely on a STEM-trained workforce that are relevant to both NASA and Nevada’s workforce needs. Scholars in the NCCC will become a part of a statewide Community of Practice (CoP) supporting studies in STEM fields.
