10th Year Report

1. NATIONAL SPACE GRANT COLLEGE & FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

 

TSGC strongly embraces the NSGC&FP Objectives. Over the last five years TSGC has conducted fifty-eight programs which make up 395 contributions to the NSGC&FP National Objectives and National Strategic Plan (1996-2000) Priorities. Each major section of this report contains a table that provides measures of TSGC's contributions (Cntrb.) to the goals of the NSGC&FP. The third column of these tables references the sections of this self-evaluation where examples of the respective contributions can be found. Each unique and distinctive activity of TSGC is counted as a contribution. For example, the NASA Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program counts as seventeen contributions. Each Texas team that flew aboard the KC-135A is a unique and distinctive contribution: four teams flew each year from 1995 to 1997 and five teams flew in 1998.
