Scholarships and Awards
Financial Aid – Application Deadline 31 January
To help support promising future aerospace professionals, the AIAA Foundation annually awards financial aid to undergraduate and graduate students in science or engineering programs related to aerospace. Our goal is to help attract top science and engineering students to aerospace fields … to provide high-visibility recognition of these students and their work … to furnish financial assistance to aerospace students … and to assure the availability of the talented professionals the aerospace industry will need in the years ahead.
The AIAA Foundation's undergraduate scholarship program offers scholarships to college sophomores, juniors, and seniors each year, and recipients can apply to renew their scholarship annually until they graduate.
Through its annual graduate scholarship program, the AIAA Foundation presents awards to graduate students doing excellent research in the air and space sciences.
Scholarship applications can be submitted online (applications accepted from September through January).
