The Air, Space and Missile Defense Association is offering 16 scholarships for selected children to attend a weeklong Space Camp from July 2-7 at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
These scholarships are open to any military or civilian children, ages 9-11, of a parent or guardian assigned to Space and Missile Defense Command; Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense; Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space; Aviation and Missile Command; Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center; Missile and Space Intelligence Center; NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center; Missile Defense Agency; Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office, and the Combined Functional Teams for Assured Position, Navigation and Timing and Air and Missile Defense as well as contractors working for one of these organizations and also to corporate members of ASMDA.
“We are very excited about the opportunity we are offering our military and employees of the ASMDA community,” Marcia Holmes, ASMDA president, said. “The ability to provide this wonderful experience to young children who probably would not otherwise have an opportunity to attend is very rewarding.”
The ASMDA scholarship includes one week at Space Camp, roundtrip airfare (if required), and a Space Camp flight suit.
As the timeline for receiving applications and awarding the scholarships is tight, ASMDA will not accept applications after the May 1 deadline.
Immediately following selection and acceptance, ASMDA will turn over the selected names to Space Camp who will send an information packet and begin making flight reservations, if applicable. Once selected by ASMDA, winners will be required to provide an attendance application, including a camp physical, to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Scholarship application forms are available at asmda.org.
