This publication outlines the involvement of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) programs in aeronautics and space research. NASA aims to assist HBCUs in science, engineering, and technology programs and also to encourage greater participation of minorities in its educational services and research. Contents of this brochure include: (1) NASA's mission, installations and HBCUs (highlighting the major program responsibilities of each of NASA's installations); (2) guidance for proposal submission (recommending an organizational structure and format); (3) student educational and research opportunities (explaining cooperative educational and graduate student researchers programs); (4) faculty opportunities (describing summer fellowships, resident research associateships and the intergovernmental mobility program); and (5) NASA educational services (including the services of the spacemobile, Explorer's program, Math Counts, community involvement programs, mini-courses and workshops for teachers, as well as speakers bureau and publications). A bibliography concerning NASA's research interests, organizational structure, and administrative requirements is also provided. An appended insert lists the HBCU research and training projects held at NASA centers. Projects from 18 colleges and universities are itemized for fiscal year 1984, indicating to prospective proposers the nature of the efforts, funding levels, and student involvement. (ML)
