Nicholas Bishop, a Texas A&M University-Kingsville graduate student, was awarded a Texas Space Grant Consortium Fellowship from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) .


Texas Space Grant Consortium Fellowships have been established to encourage graduate study in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math, NASA’s website states.

Each award of $5,000 is good for one year and will supplement half-time graduate support or fellowship provided by a Consortium institution.


Bishop graduated in Spring 2020 and earned degrees in electrical engineering and computer science. He is currently the president of The Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) and works at Distortion Studios, a new music tech startup in Corpus Christi. Bishop started graduate school in Summer 2020 in the new M.S. in mechatronics engineering program. Bishop said he will be studying robotic systems and wireless sensor networks.


This isn’t the first time Bishop has received an award from NASA. He was also awarded the scholarship version as an undergrad for the year 2019 to 2020.


“Receiving the honor of this fellowship means more than words can describe,” Bishop said. “I am especially honored to represent Texas A&M-Kingsville. It has further inspired and motivated me to continue pushing myself, and never stop reaching for the stars! I am so thankful for everyone at TAMUK who has helped me in my journey so far.”
