The NASA Puerto Rico Space Grant Consortium (PRSGC) enhances local research and education capabilities in NASA-related fields and contributes to the Nation's Science and Technology enterprise by capitalizing on the institutional and human capital available on the Island.

PRSGC resides in the Resource Center for Science and Engineering, with the Central Administration of the University of Puerto Rico as the Lead Institution and 14 public and private affiliate institutions.

The Consortium implements a research and education agenda relevant to Puerto Rico and NASA and disseminates knowledge about the NASA mission and the associated opportunities available for students, teachers, professors and researchers. By improving the quality and relevance of research and education on the Island, PRSGC helps expand and nurture a diversified and sophisticated workforce capable of contributing to meeting the needs of our Nation.
