The world's first spaceline, Virgin Galactic and the Virgin Group's not-for-profit Virgin Unite have come together to announce the Galactic Unite STEM Scholarship Program. Galactic Unite is a global initiative, driven by Virgin Galactic's community of Future Astronaut customers, designed to inspire and support students as they seek answers to global challenges through science, technology, engineering and mathematics education (STEM) and business entrepreneurship. Virgin Galactic Future Astronauts Jann Bytheway and Global recording artist/UNESCO Artist for Peace Ambassador Sarah Brightman have, by generous donations, created the Galactic Unite STEM Scholarship Program.
The Galactic Unite Brightman Scholarship program will provide $7,500 scholarship to first-year female college student pursuing STEM degrees at any accredited four-year college or university in the United States. The first Galactic Unite Brightman Scholarship will be awarded in September 2012. The award is renewable for four years. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents in any of the 50 United States.
