NASA received more than 100 applications nationwide; only five proposals were accepted. Bettis, who is from Hillsboro, Mo., is doing Ph.D. work in aerospace engineering. His research proposal was on the quantification of uncertainties in aerodynamic heating of a hypersonic re-entry vehicle.

The fellowship consists of a $35,000 annual stipend for two years (with an option for a third year) and two $10,000 summer internships at a NASA research center.

He is working with his advisor, Serhat Hosder, assistant professor of aerospace engineering at Missouri S&T.
