UK Space Agency funding for Space Placements

Notice: Funding available to industry for student placements

The UK Space Agency is offering grants of up to £3,000 for organisations to take on undergraduate or postgraduate students for work placements in the space industry.

The funding, from the Agency’s Space Placements in Industry (SPIN) scheme, is for projects at small and medium size businesses, universities, charities, not-for-profit or government agencies within the space sector.

There is a total of £45,000 funding available, with a maximum of £3,000 for each award.

The scheme, which is supported by the Satellite Applications Catapult in Harwell, is run to support paid work placements for students, including those who are due to graduate in 2018. It is part of the UK Space Agency’s skills and careers objectives, as set out in its Education, Skills and Outreach Strategy.

This in turn supports the aims of the UK Space Agency by providing a context for students to experience the breadth of opportunities that the sector can offer, developing skills crucial to the success of the sector, supporting the growth of businesses within the sector and raising awareness of the UK’s space programme and STEM subjects in general.
