The National Space Club of Huntsville awards two different types of scholarships as part of its scholarship program.
PARTNER INSTITUTION STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS
The first type of scholarship is in support of students attending a college or university in Northern Alabama. This program is executed in conjunction with partner institutions in Northern Alabama. In this program, the candidates are provided by the respective schools for evaluation by the NSC-HSV Education Committee. Candidates are evaluated on the following: GPA; extracurricular actives, awards, etc.; community outreach; degree alignment with STEM and space exploration; and the overall application/information. Scholarships are intended to support tuition and fees, and checks are made out directly to the partner institutions. Scholarships can range from $1,000 to $5,000. U.S. Citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply.

CHILDREN OF MEMBERS SCHOLARSHIPS
The second type of scholarship is “children-of-members.” These scholarships are intended to provide a benefit to NSC-HSV members and are open to children & grandchildren of members in good standing. High school seniors or college freshman thru juniors whose parents or grandparents are members of the club are eligible to apply. Candidates are evaluated on the following: GPA; extracurricular actives, awards, etc.; community outreach; degree alignment with STEM and space exploration; and the overall application, which includes a short essay. Scholarship values can range from $1,000 to $4,000. The scholarships are intended to support tuition and fees, and checks are made out directly to the institutions. U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply. Family of NSC Board Members are not eligible. Completed applications with essays must be received via e-mail by midnight March 26, 2021 to: ScholarshipApplication@spaceclubhsv.org.
Please note, children of members who attend one of our partner schools in Northern Alabama should work with their institutions to apply through the school’s application process and not by the child of a member process. This is to avoid double application by students who fall in both categories.
