    >Subject: NASA Graduate Student Researcher Program
    >I would like to draw attention to the Graduate Student Researcher
    >Program (GSRP) that provides Ames researchers with an opportunity for
    >increased interaction with universities, by having a graduate student
    >spend time at Ames on a collaborative project. The funding for this
    >program comes directly from Headquarters and provides a stipend of up to
    >22K for three years. The GSRP is ideal for a student who has passed his
    >examinations and will be able to complete a research problem within
    >three years leading to a Ph.D. However, a shorter duration research
    >project leading to a Masters thesis may also be worthy of consideration.
    >This GSRP program, initiated by NASA in 1980, allows students to remain
    >at their home university for most of the year. However, the stipends
    >include funds to cover travel expenses to the host NASA center. The Ames
    >Basic Research Council makes the selections in the April-May time frame
    >each year. The council tends to fund those proposals that have strong
    >interaction with Ames- i.e. where there is a clear win-win situation
    >with both the student and Ames deriving something tangible from the
    >interaction. The specific GSRP policy guidelines are given below.
    >Rochelle Roberts administers the program at Ames. Please contact her
    >( for additional details if you are
    >interested in taking advantage of this program. You can also visit the
    >program web site at
    >All applicants must be full-time graduate students enrolled in an
    >accredited U.S. college or university. Applicants must be citizens of
    >the U.S. and may apply to the program prior to receiving their
    >baccalaureate degrees or any time during their graduate work.
    >The Graduate Student Researcher Program proposal submission deadline is
    >February 1, 2001. Applications will be reviewed and selections made in
    >May 2001. Proposed starting dates for new awards are the first day of
    >July, August, or September 2001. (Renewals are not automatic, students
    >must re-apply every year in order to be considered for being granted a
    >renewal, in addition to receiving a positive evaluation from their Ames
