NASA announces 2013 aeronautics scholarship recipients

NASA has selected 25 students from across the nation to receive the agency’s Aeronautics Scholarship for the 2013-2014 school year.

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

“Future innovation in aeronautics is dependent on today’s engineering students,” said Jaiwon Shin, associate administrator for NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate in Washington. “Developing new advances in air transportation is critical if the United States is to remain a world leader in aviation. As engineers, these scholars will be challenged to solve the problems facing the aviation industry as the demand for air travel increases.”

The students will have the opportunity to intern with NASA researchers and work on developing technologies for managing air traffic more efficiently. In addition, they will work on technologies that reduce aircraft noise, fuel consumption and emissions, and improve air safety.

This year’s recipients are enrolled at universities in California, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin.

Undergraduate scholarship winners will receive $15,000 per 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 per year for as many as three years and $10,000 stipends for as many as two summer internships. To maintain their scholarship awards, all recipients must continue to meet the academic standards of the universities they attend.
