AIAA Scholarships

The AIAA Space Diversity Scholar program completed its inaugural session at the AIAA SciTech Forum, from January 7-12, 2018, in Kissimmee, Florida. The scholarship program supported 17 students(including 8 from Florida) from all over the country to attend SciTech, selected based on a competitive application process which sought to increase the disciplinary and demographic diversity of individuals in the space industry. Students were initially selected to attend AIAA Space in September 2017, but due to its cancellation by Hurricane Irma, subsequently attended the SciTech Forum. Their transportation, hotel, and registration were covered by the scholarship program
