FSGC Research Programs

The Florida Space Grant Consortium has a long history of supporting exciting scientific research. With the sponsorship of Space Florida (present) and the Florida Space Research Institute (in the past), we have funded projects from across the entire space spectrum and we continue to diversify each and every year. These research endeavors combine the efforts of professors, students, and researchers in projects of true intellectual merit. Learn more about the research we have supported, view successful proposals, and even apply for the funding of your own research.

FSGC and Space Florida are sponsoring 2 research programs. The first one is the Florida Space Research Program and the other is the FSGC/SF-KSC Technology and Commercialization Development Program.
