The Tennessee Space Grant Consortium is comprised of fifteen colleges and universities around the state of Tennessee, as well as two not-for-profit organizations. We are part of the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, supported by NASA and all member and affiliate institutions. Our mission from the beginning, twenty-seven years ago, has been to promote space and science education on all levels throughout Tennessee.


We share the following National Objectives with the 51 Other Space Grant Consortia:

  • Establish and maintain a national network of universities with interests and capabilities in aeronautics, space and related fields;

  • Encourage cooperative programs among universities, aerospace industry, and Federal, state and local governments;

  • Encourage interdisciplinary training, research and public service programs related to aerospace;

  • Recruit and train U.S. citizens, especially women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities, for careers in aerospace science and technology;

  • Promote a strong science, mathematics, and technology education base from elementary through secondary levels.
