The space-grant colleges are institutions that are members of a network of 52 consortia formed for the purpose of outer space-related research.[1] Each consortium is based in one of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico, and each consists of multiple independent space-grant institutions, with one of the institutions acting as the lead.

The U.S. Congress established the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program in 1988. NASA administers the program, and first took that role in 1989.

Similar programs include land-grant colleges (instituted in 1862), sea-grant colleges (instituted in 1966), and sun-grant colleges (instituted in 2003). Unlike in the land-grant program, no economic rights to outer space have been granted in the space-grant program, only money.

Participating institutions[edit]

As of 2002, there are over 850 participating institutions.[3]
