WASHINGTON -- NASA is seeking applications from graduate students for
the agency's second class of Space Technology Research Fellowships.
Applications will be accepted from accredited U.S. universities on
behalf of graduate students interested in performing space technology
research beginning in fall 2012.

The fellowships will sponsor U.S. graduate student researchers who
show significant potential to contribute to NASA's strategic space
technology objectives through their studies. Sponsored by NASA's
Office of the Chief Technologist and the Space Technology Program,
the fellowships' continuing goal is to provide the nation with a
pipeline of highly skilled engineers and technologists to improve
America's technological competitiveness. Fellows will perform
