The Air, Space and Missile Defense Association (ASMDA) is proud to announce that for the ninth consecutive year we will be offering college scholarships to deserving students in the Air, Space and Missile Defense community through the Mayor Loretta Spencer University Scholarship Fund. This year ASMDA will select four undergraduate (jumior or seniors) or graduate students majoring in science or engineering to each receive a $4,000 Scholarship Award. These scholarships will be presented at the annual Space and Missile Defense Conference held at the Von Braun Center during August 8-10, 2017.
