Giving TuesdayThis year SEDS-USA is focusing on raising money for sending more students to our annual SpaceVision conference. Many students start their aerospace careers through the networking and socializing they do at this conference, so being able to give students who would not have the opportunity otherwise to come to this conference through a scholarship is crucial. Here are some testimonies from the 2019 SpaceVision Scholarship Recipients:
“The scholarship made it possible for me to attend this conference at all (for which I am immensely grateful!). I took a lot away from this conference, including a stronger sense of community with other undergrads passionate about space and with the members of my own chapter that I traveled with.”
“SpaceVision changed the way I see my career and helped me set new goals for myself. Also, I met a lot of incredible people that share my passion for space exploration. I was able to meet with recruiters and establish valuable connections with professionals in the industry. The scholarship allowed me to do this because I could not have attended if it wasn’t for it.”
“SpaceVision was incredibly impactful to my career goals in allowing me to expand my network and ask questions to help guide me down the right path. Receiving the scholarship not only helped me attend, but helped me make connections with other recipients, so I learned more about some of the people and chapters involved with SEDS”Currently, it costs about ~$500 for SEDS to send a student to SpaceVision. This year, we’ve set a goal of raising $2,500 so that we can send 5 more students to the conference. Any contribution helps!
