AIAA and Club for the Future’s Resilient Student Scholarship

Club for the Future Logo

AIAA and Club for the Future's Resilient Student Scholarship was created in 2023 with a profound commitment to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the aerospace industry. This scholarship is specifically designed to empower and inspire students who have faced unique challenges: students with disabilities; from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds, gender minorities, or disadvantaged socioeconomic circumstances; and first-generation college students.

Made possible by a collaboration with Club for the Future whose mission is to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM and to help invent the future of life in space. One $10,000 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior who is enrolling in a STEM program at a college, university, or 2-year technical institution. The winner will also receive a mentor from AIAA’s professional members to help guide the student to achieve a career in aerospace.

Applications for the AIAA and Club for the Future’s Resilient Student Scholarship open 7 November and close on 31 January at 2359 hrs ET. For questions, email
