>>Dear Concerned Indian Educator,

>>students get equal access to this outstanding program.
>>NASA SHARP is specifically designed to attract and increase
>>underrepresented students' participation and success rates in mathematics
>>and science courses as well as to encourage career paths that help build
>>a pool of underrepresented science and engineering professionals in the
>>workplace. NASA seeks diversity in all student support programs and all
>>eligible students are encouraged to apply. The NASA SHARP experience
>>provides high school students with an opportunity to develop and
>>strengthen their research techniques as well as their written and oral
>>communication skills, particularly in Science, Technology, Engineering,
>>Mathematics and Geography (STEM+G) fields. Top NASA, university, and
>>research professionals mentor qualified students selected to participate
>>in SHARP. NASA SHARP is comprised of two components; the Commuter and
>>the Residential. Students are paid an hourly stipend for the eight hours
>>a day, eight-week program.
