USRA Scholarship Awards: Now accepting Applications

Applications for the 2015 USRA Scholarship Awards are now being accepted.
Information and the online application form are available at http://www.usra.edu/about/outreach/scholarship
These are awards made to undergraduate students who have shown a career interest in science or engineering with an emphasis on space research or space science education. Three Scholarship Awards have been established to honor individuals who have made specific contributions to science and the US Space Program.  A fourth Scholarship Award, recently re-named in memory of USRA President Frederick A. Tarantino, broadly supports undergraduate science and engineering education. Students will be matched to the scholarship award most appropriate for their area of study.
Up to four Scholarship Awards are available in amounts of $2000 annually.  Awards are made to undergraduate students who will be juniors or seniors in the fall.  Awards are for one year only, but recipients may re-apply for a second year.  All scholarship awards will be paid directly to the recipients.

Applications for Fall 2015 Awards will be accepted up until July 31, 2015.
