    Diversity Scholars Program

    The AIAA Diversity Scholars Program seeks to provide opportunities for underrepresented university students pursuing a degree in aerospace to attend an AIAA forum.

    AIAA forums draw professionals and students from around the world. Scholars will have the opportunity to expand their network, learn about opportunities available in the aerospace industry, and hear from engineers and scientists on the latest research and development findings helping to shape the future of aerospace. Special sessions will also be designed to enhance the scholars’ experience.

    Students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, gender minorities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, first-generation students, and women have historically been underrepresented in STEM fields therefore, they will receive priority in funding.

    Diversity applications for the 2019 AIAA SciTech Forum, to be held 7–11 January in San Diego, California, were due 15 October.
