"NM student program earns $500K NASA grant" Albuquerque Journal

NASA has awarded a $500,000 grant to the New Mexico Space Grant Consortium to help students design and launch experiments into space from Spaceport America.  U.S. Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich (D-NM) announced the award Monday, which goes to support the Community College Technical Schools Student Launch Program.  The senators requested the funding in April with an eye on helping “attract and retain students to jobs in high-tech sectors,” according to a statement. – 8/19/2014
