Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 3

The $2,500 scholarships this year include the Tim Bolgeo Memorial Scholarship, supported by Baen Books, and our other sponsors Rob and Ru Ann Hampson, and Jay and Beth Roye. The scholarships are merit-based, and require all applicants to complete an essay with their application forms. The deadline for all applications is May 15, 2020.

"The Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop was created to foster and assist the study, research and experimentation necessary to make human interstellar travel a reality, with untold benefits to life on Earth," said TVIW President Emeritus John Preston. "We can imagine no better way to demonstrate that goal than the creation of these scholarships, helping new generations of thinkers, builders and explorers to set their sights on the stars."

Applicants for the graduate scholarship must be full-time college or university students majoring in a STEM related field, and seeking a graduate degree in science from an accredited college or university in the United States.
