Announcing the 2013 ASMDA Space Camp Scholarship Applications

The Air, Space, and Missile Defense Association (ASMDA) is offering 16 scholarships for selected children to attend a one week Space Camp this summer at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.  The attached flyer includes the application and information on the scholarships.  This is an annual event hosted by ASMDA.

PLEASE NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 1 MAY.

These scholarships are open to any child, age 9-11, of a parent or guardian currently assigned to USASMDC/ARSTRAT (including Kwajalein and Fort Greely), JFCC IMD, AMCOM, AMRDEC, PEO-M&S, MSIC, NASA Marshall, or MDA (military or civilian), including matrix personnel, and those that are contractors working for corporate members of ASMDA. Government and military personnel must apply for free membership to ASMDA to be eligible.

The ASMDA scholarship includes one week at Space Camp (30 June – 5 July), round-trip airfare to and from parent’s work location, Space Camp flight suit, Space Camp clothing package, phone card, small amount of spending cash, and any unaccompanied minor travel fees.

As the timeline for receiving applications and awarding this summer’s ASMDA scholarships is very tight, applications will not be accepted after the stipulated deadline: 1 May 2013.  The goal is to notify the winners starting on 24 May.  Immediately following selection and acceptance, ASMDA will send an information package and begin making flight reservations, if applicable.  Once selected by ASMDA, winners will be required to provide an attendance application (including a summer camp physical) to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.

ASMDA Scholarship Application Forms are available here.

The Air, Space, and Missile Defense Association (ASMDA) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to support USASMDC/ARSTRAT, PEO-M&S, JFCC-IMD, MSIC, NASA Marshall, and MDA in the attainment of their goals and visions.

Please make as wide a distribution as you can through your installation newspaper, internal email or other means available.
