COMPETITION GUIDELINESLetters of Intent Due: November 20, 1998
Proposals Due: December 18, 1998
The 1999 NASA Means Business Student Competition is a new national pilot program that directly involves university students in real NASA programs and missions.
In its inaugural year, the NASA Means Business Student Competition will choose six (6) student teams to write drafts of the NASA Mars Exploration Business Plan, which is to be part of the strategic roadmap by which people will initially explore and develop Mars.
We offer an outstanding educational experience. Prior to selection, a student team will venture into the world of proposal-writing and procurement, as it organizes, writes and submits a competitive proposal. Once selected, the team will investigate issues that are important to NASA's Mars Human/Robotic Exploration Team mission planners and design solutions. The Mars mission planners will review each team's work with the expectation of incorporating it into the official NASA Mars Exploration Business Plan.
Selected teams will also receive cash awards of $1,000, travel grants to Johnson Space Center to present their work, and international recognition for their contributions to NASA's Mars exploration planning effort.
WE INVITE YOU to submit a proposal to work with NASA to explore Mars.
