Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium is comprised of more than 20 institutions within the state of Washington, including universities, community colleges, private industry, educational organizations and museums.

The Consortium was established in 1989 with a grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Its mission is to enhance higher education opportunities for students seeking to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM); to enrich and improve STEM education at Washington’s diverse pre-college, college, university and community learning centers; and to provide public outreach for NASA missions, and thereby strengthen the future workforce for NASA and our nation.
