Eyes on the Skies: Zonta’s AE Fellowship

June 29, 2017: One of the highlights of my graduate student career was receiving a Zonta Amelia Earhart (AE) Fellowship, which supports women pursuing doctoral degrees in the fields of aerospace science or aerospace engineering. Partly as a result of this award, I now belong to a select group of women throughout the world who are pursing their dreams of exploring space, in one way or another.

Therefore, I pay attention when the annual list of recipients is announced. Rarely is there a planetary scientist among the 35 awardees, but in 2017 there are two!  Read my interviews with them.

Applications for the AE Fellowship are usually due in mid-November. Find out more information here.
