GSGC Funded Activities 2014 – 2015

2015 JSC Wearable Technology Symposium Support

This is a research project for undergraduate and graduate students from the school of interactive computing and the school of industrial design to work on interdisciplinary teams that create wearable technology projects for NASA under the mentorship of NASA engineers from JSC, and showcase their work in a Wearable Technology Symposium at JSC.

Rocket Rescue Robot Competition

Dr. William Singhose in the School of Mechanical Engineering manages an extracurricular activity that provides undergraduate and graduate students with an opportunity to build a robot and launch it up to 3,000 m over the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. After being ejected from the rocket at that altitude, the goal is have the robot autonomously reach a remote target in the desert and "rescue" people stranded at a location. Numerous teams from around the world compete to get their machines closest to the target.


Three levels of funding are offered at Georgia Tech for students pursuing graduate degrees in STEM. Director's Fellows are a one time award with a maximum of $5000. There are also Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) and Teaching Assistantships (TAs). Funding for the GRAs and TAs varies. There is an open application period for funding.
