Scholarship Programs

Scholarship Programs

The National Space Club of Huntsville awards two different types of scholarships as part of its scholarship program. 

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; and candidates are provided by the respective schools for evaluation by the NSC-HSV Education Committee.

Children of Members Scholarships

Application Form

The Second category of scholarship is “children-of-members.”  These scholarships are intended to provide 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.  Applications for this scholarship may be obtained by reaching out to the club admin.

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.

Partner Institutions

Our partner institutions in Norther Alabama are:

  • University of Alabama in Huntsville
  • Alabama A&M University
  • University of North Alabama
  • Athens State University
  • Calhoun Community College
  • JF Drake State Community College


The 2019 timeline for scholarship applications and selection are as follows:

  • March 15: Partner institutions provide their candidates
  • April 1: Member scholarship application deadline
  • May 1: Scholarship selections complete
