Yvonne C. Brill Lecture in Aerospace Engineering Open for Nominations 1 October 2023 – 1 February 2024
The Yvonne C. Brill Lecture in Aerospace Engineering was established in 2013 in memory of Yvonne Brill, pioneering rocket scientist, AIAA Honorary Fellow and NAE member. She was a trailblazer at a time when women were not encouraged to enter the science and technology fields. The Lecture emphasizes research or engineering issues for space travel and exploration, aerospace education of students and the public, and other aerospace issues such as ensuring a diverse and robust engineering community.
This biennial award will be held at the National Academy of Engineering building in Washington, D.C. in October, in the even years. This Lecture is free and open to the public. Nomination deadline: 1 February
