Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
Every year, a new class of students are awarded the prestigious merit-based Astronaut Scholarship. In order to be considered for this scholarship, candidates must be nominated by university faculty members and must display initiative, creativity, and excellence in their chosen field.
ASF visits various institutions across the nation, presenting scholarship awards and providing educational seminars on the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and its impact on our world. These seminars are open to the public.
