The Kalpana Chawla Scholarship Project @ the International Space University

kcs scholarship

 

The Kalpana Chawla Scholarship Project @ the International Space University (ISU) has been established to honor the Indian- American Astronaut Dr. Kalpana Chawla. It launches VISION 2020, a campaign to select exceptional Indian post-graduate students and allow them to attend the International Space University’s Space Studies Program.

logo kcsA scholarship endowment fund was set up, as part of an annual campaign to identify and assist in funding three exceptional Indian post-graduate students.

According to Michael Potter: "This is a historic moment to achieve an enhanced international impact with a few select, but very talented Indian post-graduate students. India will continue to play on the international stage, as it moves forward leading the development of space technologies and activities."

The Kalpana Chawla Scholarship Project @ the International Space University (ISU) has been  established to honor the Indian-American Astronaut Dr. Kalpana Chawla who tragically perished while broadening humanity’s knowledge through space-based research.

The initiative seeks to raise funds, to send the first Dr. Kalpana Chawla post-graduate scholar to the 2015 Space Studies Program which will take place this year at Ohio University, Athens, USA. The scholarship project is focused on developing strong technical and space leadership qualities with India’s youth. The Kalpana Chawla Scholarship Project maintains a keen interest on the development of extraordinarily talented scholars. The scholarship and endowment is used to provide scholarship funding for Indian nationals to attend the SSP. The goal is to attract talented young Indian students with backgrounds in science, medicine, and other space-related areas, who also share Dr. Chawla’s selfless and passionate pursuit of science and excellence.

This scholarship is a commitment to creating the building blocks that are necessary for India to establish a leadership position in the global space community and marketplace.
