Diversity Scholars Program
In This Section
The AIAA Diversity Scholars Program seeks to provide opportunities for underrepresented university students who have an interest in or are pursuing a degree in aerospace to attend an AIAA forum or event.
AIAA forums and events 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.
Application Process and Details
Full-time students from U.S. institutions are invited to apply. Applicants will be required to provide demographic information and describe their interest in aerospace, leadership/perseverance, and how they would benefit from attending the forum or event. In 2021, there will be three opportunities to apply for the scholarship. You may apply to attend more than one event.
