The Colorado Space Grant Consortium is a state-wide program that provides Colorado students access to space through innovative courses, real-world hands-on satellite programs, and interactive outreach programs. We are funded by NASA as part of National Space Grant Program. There are 52 consortia in the National Space Grant program, with one consortium in each state, in addition to Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.
Providing a diverse group of Colorado students with experiences in space to prepare them for our Nation's future space programs.
The COSGC uses the excitement of the nation's aeronautics and space program to inspire, educate, and develop America's future technological workforce by enabling a diverse community of college and university students to participate in space-based hands-on projects, courses, and outreach activities.
The COSGC involves 17 colleges, universities and institutions around Colorado. This year, the COSGC involves over 200 college and university students directly in our programs. The COSGC Education and Public Outreach program reaches hundreds of students and teachers each month. Many of our members teach space-related courses.
The COSGC main office is located in the Discovery Learning Center on the campus of the University of Colorado at Boulder.
