The International Space Safety Foundation awarded four graduate student fellowships in 2016 as part of the first ISSF Graduate Student Fellowship Program.  The students are full time graduate students pursuing graduate degrees at Cornell University, University of California at Los Angeles, and University of Southern California in the United States and Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 ISSF Graduate Student Fellowship Program.  Applications are due March 1, 2017.

The ISSF Graduate Student Fellowship Program is a unique program created to expand Space Safety Engineering awareness and encourage the next generation of student investigators to develop their own ideas for spaceflight safety research. The ISSF has set aside a set amount of funds for the ISSF Fellowship Fund. All thesis topic proposals will be reviewed by the ISSF Fellowship Board on a first-come, first-reviewed basis until funds have been allocated.  Applicants received by the deadline will receive full consideration.

Selected Fellowship Recepients will receive:

– Grant of $1,000 grant
– Registration for the 2017 IAASS Conference, Know Safety, No Pain (for presenting students)
– Assignment of an ISSF mentor with experience in the area of research

Deadline for proposals: March 1, 2017
