Matthew Harms, a senior in engineering at the University of Southern Indiana, is the recipient of a $1,500 scholarship for 2010-11 from the Indiana Space Grant Consortium (INSGC).

INSGC funds scholarships for students pursuing careers in STEM (Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology) fields. Recipients are chosen on a competitive basis. Harms is the sixth USI engineering student to receive an INSGC scholarship for 2010-11.

Harms is from Bone Gap, Illinois. He is vice president of the USI student chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He earned an associate degree from Wabash Valley College in Mt Carmel, Illinois, in 2009.

The Indiana Space Grant Consortium awards scholarships to students at its affiliate institutions. INSGC is one of 52 consortia that are part of the National Space College and Fellowship Program, initiated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1989. Each consortium includes colleges, universities, businesses, and other private- and public-sector institutions working to further aerospace education and career training.
