Jakob DeLong awarded the NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship

Congratulations to ESL Graduate Research Associate Jakob DeLong who was awarded a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship (NSTRF). 

The goal of NSTRF is to sponsor graduate students who "show significant potential to contribute to NASA’s goal of creating innovative new space technologies for our Nation’s science, exploration and economic future. The fellows perform innovative, space technology research at their respective campuses and at NASA Centers and/or at nonprofit U.S. Research and Development (R&D) laboratories. Awards are made in the form of training grants to accredited U.S. universities on behalf of individuals pursuing master’s or doctoral degrees, with the faculty advisor serving as the principal investigator.

Jakob DeLong was awarded the fellowship in response to a competitive proposal contest he entered at the end of 2017. His fellowship will begin August 1 and will cover the remainder of his Ph.D.
