NASA has awarded Alabama State University a grant of nearly $1.2 million to enhance minority engineering programs, experimental research and more. ASU is one of six colleges and universities across the nation receiving the grants under NASA’s Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP).

The grant in the amount of $1,198,937.75 covers a three-year budget and is part of a $7 million overall award to the six institutions. MUREP sought proposals from minority-serving institutions of higher education for projects aimed at strengthening its support of underrepresented communities. “Creating a future for humanity in the stars and continuing to improve life on Earth are tasks NASA can only achieve by involving all of humanity,” a NASA spokesperson said.

Michelle Foster, chair of ASU’s Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, submitted the successful application to NASA.
