      >>Dear Concerned Indian Educator,
      >>
      >>The NASA SHARP program is seeking academically talented rising juniors

      >>
      >>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.

      >> States or a native resident of a possession of the United States. It
      >> does NOT refer to a citizen of another country who is a U.S. permanent
      >> resident. U.S. permanent residents are not eligible for the program,
      >> unless they comply with the Child Citizen Act of 2000, Public Law 106-395.
      >>
      >>* Demonstrate a strong interest in and aptitude for a career in
      >>science, mathematics, technology, engineering, or geography.
