Texas Space Grant Consortium Awards Columbia Crew Memorial Scholarships
May 25, 2004

The Texas Space Grant Consortium the Aviation and Space Foundation of Texas have awarded twenty-five $1,000 Columbia Crew Memorial Scholarships for the 2004-05 Academic Year to undergraduate students attending 17 of its member institutions. These scholarships were established by the Consortium and the Foundation in partnership with NASA in memory of the Space Shuttle Columbia astronauts. These seven men and women gave their lives to expand the exploration of space and our knowledge of the world in which we live.

These scholarships recognize high-achieving students and encourage their consideration of graduate studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields which could ultimately lead to careers in space-related fields. The scholarships stress excellence in academics, participation in space education projects, participation in research projects, and exhibited leadership qualities.

The Texas Space Grant Consortium is a group of 35 institutions which include universities, industrial organizations, non-profit organizations, and government agencies within Texas. Through education and research, the Consortium seeks to inspire Texans to participate in and support NASA's mission of improving life on our planet, extending life beyond our planet, and exploring the universe.
