NASA AND NSF PROGRAMS

NSF New York City Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NYC-LSAMP) Program is a consortium of sixteen baccalaureate and Associate degree granting CUNY campuses and the Graduate School and University Center. It funds activities such as:  1. Student Support through Learning Centers, 2. Students’ Stipends for Tutoring, 3. Undergraduate Research, 4. Student Research Stipends

NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) Institute on Climate and Planets (ICP) is collaboration between the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the NYC-AMP project at CUNY, and the New York Public Schools. It involves college and high school students, their faculty, and GISS scientists in a team approach to carry out research projects in climate and planetary research. A summer institute provides an intensive academic and research experience with scientific collaboration continuing during the academic year both at GISS and on campus.

NASA Atmospheric/Ocean and Environmental Science Research Program is collaboration between PECS and GISS. This campus based research program provides undergraduate and high school students the opportunity to be part of the NASA Earth Science Enterprise.

NASA Science and Technology Teachers for the Next Millennium Program is a collaborative effort between Medgar Evers College (CUNY) and the City College of New York (CUNY), which provides science and technology majors with the opportunity, knowledge, and skills to become teachers of secondary school science and technology in an urban, multicultural environment.

NASA Minority University Information (MU-SPIN) CUNY Network Resources and Training Site (NRTS) Network is a collaboration involving City College, Medgar Evers College, LaGuardia Community College, York College, and Queensborough Community College in order to develop an information infrastructure on each campus that may be applied to research and education activities.

New York State Department of Education Graduate Research Technology Initiative assisted in providing a dedicated network for faculty and student research, instructional use, and research related activities for students in the introductory chemistry and physics courses.

The New York City Space Science Research Alliance (NYC-SSRA), funded by the NASA Office of Space Science, is initiating and enhancing multiple collaborations in Space Science research and has developed a BS Degree in Space Science in The City University of New York City University of New York Baccalaureate Degree Program. The Alliance is a coalition of CUNY Colleges, Hayden Planetarium of the American Museum of Natural History, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.  Undergraduate research includes: 1. Planetary Science, 2. Earth-Sun Connection, and 3. Astrophysics
