USRA Scholarship Award Program


The USRA Scholarship Award Program provides annual college scholarship awards to outstanding students who have shown a career interest in the physical sciences, engineering or life sciences with an emphasis on space research, space science education, or aerospace- related sciences or engineering.

Four undergraduate scholarship awards are available in amounts of $4,000 each. Scholarships are awarded for one year only.

All awards will be paid directly to the recipients. The USRA Scholarships are awarded to U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents, but without regard to race, gender, religion, age, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity. USRA will not make scholarship awards to applicants who are not qualified and reserves the right not to award a scholarship in a given year.
