Astronaut Scholarship Foundation for undergraduates: Deadline 03/15/17

Department / Organization: Center for Space Resources

Deadline for submitting application to the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation: Wednesday, March 15

This is a reminder of the March 15th deadline to submit applications to the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (http://astronautscholarship.org), which is given every year to outstanding students who exhibit motivation, imagination, and exceptional performance in any field of engineering, mathematics and natural or applied sciences. There will be two (2) scholarships ($10K each) awarded to CSM students for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Any student who will be a junior or senior during the 2017-2018 academic year, is a US citizen, and is majoring in any discipline at Mines is eligible for this scholarship. The key additional requirement is that the undergraduate student should have conducted research in his/her specific field. Therefore, students should be nominated by a professor who knows the student well. So, students make sure to tell your project advisor to nominate you!

All nominations will be reviewed internally by a committee of CSM faculty members. Therefore, please send me all application materials by March 15, 2017. The internal committee will select the top 3-4 applicants and send them to ASF on March 24, 2017. The ASF will then select and award scholarships to our best two candidates.
