Have you ever dreamed of being an astronaut? Your skills in science, math and English can help make your dream come true! Applications are due by Sunday, May 22 for the Space Camp Scholarship.
Space Camp is an interactive educational experience that brings theory to life through simulated training aboard the NASA Space Shuttle. Twelve Moroccan and Algerian high school students aged 15-18 who excel in science, technology, engineering and mathematics will receive scholarships to the Advanced Space Academy: a challenging mental, emotional and physical experience at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. All participant costs (including air and ground transportation, lodging, meals and incidental expenses) will be paid by the U.S. Department of State.
