Description: The NASA Academy is a unique summer experience at the university level for developing future leaders of the U.S. Space Program. The program is an intensive, resident, ten-week summer experience with laboratory research work, a group project, lectures, meetings with experts and administrators, visits to NASA Centers and space-related industries, technical writing, and presentations. Students discover how NASA and its Centers operate, gain experience in world-class laboratories, participate in a team environment and build professional bonds. On graduation, Academy participants are inducted into the NASA Academy Alumni Association (NAAA) whose goal is to promote NASA, the NASA Academy, research, and space education. The 52 state-based members of the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program have co-sponsored the NASA Academy since its founding in 1993. The University of Maryland, College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Science is also a GSFC Academy co-sponsor granting 3 credits to participants who successfully complete the Goddard program.
