The NASA Aeronautics Scholarship Program is currently accepting scholarship application. This scholarship program is designed for students pursuing aeronautical engineering and other related fields such as Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics.
This is a great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students because it awards $15,000 -$35,000 scholarship money ($15,000 for undergraduate and $35,000 for graduate students) for each school year that can be used to pay for tuition fees and other educational related expenses.
Aside from the $15,000 – $35,000 scholarship money, undergraduate scholars are also eligible for $10,000 summer internship at a NASA Research Center while graduate scholars are privileged for $10,000 summer internship.
