The NASA Florida Space Grant Consortium (FSGC) was formed in 1989, when NASA implemented the national Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. It is a voluntary association of seventeen public and private Florida Universities and colleges led by the University of Central Florida. The Consortium also includes all of Florida’s community colleges, as well as the Astronaut Memorial Foundation, Space Florida, Kennedy Space Center, and Orlando Science Center. FSGC supports the expansion and diversification of Florida’s space industry, through providing grants, scholarships, and fellowships to students and educators from Florida’s public and private institutes of higher education.
FSGC is administered by the University of Central Florida through the Florida Space Institute.
