The Robert H. Goddard Memorial Scholarship is offered annually by the National Space Club to a university upperclassman with definite plans to pursue studies in science or engineering. The scholarship's purpose is to stimulate the interest of talented students in the opportunity to advance scientific knowledge through space research and exploration.
One scholarship, in the amount of $10,000, may be awarded each year. Candidates must be U.S. citizens in at least their junior year at an accredited university and intending to pursue undergraduate or graduate studies in science or engineering during the interval of the scholarship.
Candidates will be judged on their academic records; letters of recommendation; statement of intent; and past research, leadership, and participation in space-related science and engineering.
