How would you like to get your hands on a $10,000 scholarship?
STEM students have plenty of opportunities to obtain funding, like this $10,000 scholarship aimed at those with a passion for space
If you’re soon to become a college student, you need to make a note of what we’re going to tell you: grants for school are the easiest way to pay for your degree at offline or online universities.
We know, at this moment you’re probably worried whether or not you’re going to be accepted into college at all, but once these fears dissipate and you receive the welcome letter, your next concern is going to shift from being admitted to how to get the necessary funding.
The hard truth is that offline and online universities are quite expensive and grants for school are the best way to ease that financial burden. You could always get a loan, but you’ll have to pay for them once you graduate with your degree and you really don’t want that. You want to start off your life as college graduate completely free of debt. And the only way to do that is by getting a scholarship that will pay for your degree. Or multiple scholarships for that matter.
How do you go about searching for scholarships? Well let’s say you are interested in a certain topic – biology or maybe drawing? Then try to find scholarships which are handed out only to students who are willing to pursue a career in this field. There are plenty of those to go around, so a quick search on the net should reveal a few pretty quickly.
We have an example for you right here. Let’s say you’ve always had a thing for space exploration and STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) in general. Then you can apply for the $10,000 scholarship offered by the National Space Club.
The grant, called Dr. Robert H. Goddard is open to seniors in high school and up graduate students. Applicants need to demonstrate the intention of pursuing a career in STEM fields and plan to attend an accredited US college. A preference for students who are targeting space-related fields will be given.
Students need to submit an application, as well as a video before December 02, 2017. Apart from receiving the $10,000 grant, the winner will also be invited to attend the National Space Club and Foundation’s annual Goddard Memorial Dinner, one of the space’s industry most prestigious events.
The National Space Club is not only home to the Dr. Robert H. Goddard scholarship but also to other funding opportunities. For example, if you have an interest in pursuing a career in aerospace fields and are currently a high school senior at an accredited US institution you can apply for the Olin E. Teague scholarship which awards $4,000 to a talented individual.
The National Space Club and Foundation Scholars Program also sponsors 50 summer internships at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and its Wallops Flight Facility. This could be a dream come true for students who have always have an interest for space.
