I am happy to announce the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Space Diversity Scholarship, in support of student attendance at the AIAA Space Conference, September 17-19 in Orlando, FL. This program encourages students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds to apply.
Applications are welcome from students in all disciplines with an interest in space (including, but not limited to, STEM fields, communications, law, industrial design, journalism, political science, etc.).
Scholarships will cover hotel, registration, and transportation to the conference. Students will be selected based on a 300-word essay demonstrating their interest in space, diversity of participants, and geographic guidelines provided by certain sponsors. Due to cost constraints, this program will only fund transportation originating in the United States, including U.S. territories. Proof of current enrollment in a degree-granting institution will be required upon acceptance of the award.
The deadline for this application is 7/3/18. Please contact Alex D’Imperio at with any questions.
