Interested in aviation & aerospace?
Lori Garver (former Associate Administrator of NASA), Will Pomerantz (VP at Virgin Galactic) and Cassie Lee (Director of Aerospace Applications at Vulcan Aerospace) have just rolled out a new internship and mentorship program with 19+ exceptional companies for summer 2017.
Applications for the Brooke Owens Fellowship Program are open now until Dec. 5th, and the goal is to engage with colleges, universities, community colleges, and student/professional groups to open the door to as many technical and non-technical applicants as possible. A single application to the BOFP gets candidates considered for all opportunities, and the process is expected to be highly competitive – though selection is based on both traditional and non-traditional criteria. (More details on the website.) Fellows are also paired with an executive-level aerospace or aviation Mentor outside of their Host Institution, and Fellows will be flown out to DC in July to get the cohort together and attend the Future Space Leaders conference.
