NASA Announces 2014 Aeronautics Scholarship Recipients

Image of the NASA logoNASA has selected 20 students from across the nation to receive the agency’s Aeronautics Scholarship for the 2014-2015 school year.

This scholarship program, which is in its seventh year, is designed to assist undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in fields of study related to aeronautics. Recipients were selected from hundreds of applications to the program.

“These students represent the future in aeronautics research,” said Jaiwon Shin, associate administrator for NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate in Washington. “Besides receiving NASA assistance to pay college costs, these students will work side-by-side with NASA scientists and engineers to help solve today’s most demanding air transportation system problems.”

The students will have the opportunity to intern with NASA researchers and work on developing technologies to increase efficiency in air traffic management, reduce aircraft noise, fuel consumption and emissions, and improve air safety.

This year’s recipients attend universities in Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington state.

Undergraduate scholarship winners will receive $15,000 a year to cover tuition costs for two years and a $10,000 stipend during a summer internship with NASA. Graduate scholarship winners will receive approximately $45,000 a year for two years and $10,000 stipends for two summer internships. To maintain their scholarship awards, all recipients must continue to meet the academic standards of the universities they attend.

View the list of the NASA Aeronautics Scholarship Program 2014 Recipients.
