GEPP Ambassador and AAE student Sam Albert has been selected for the inaugural class of the Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship Program, a new summer internship and executive mentorship program inspiring the next generation of commercial spaceflight leaders.

The highly-selective program pairs exceptional college juniors, seniors, and graduate students pursuing aerospace careers with paid internships at 20 cutting-edge commercial space companies across the nation. Fellows also receive one-on-one mentorship from aerospace industry executives for a full year. The program culminates in a two-day summit during which the Fellows will network with leaders in industry, visit space start-ups, and develop entrepreneurial skills.

For Summer 2018, the Program received more than 100 applications from 47 colleges in 21 states. From that list, program coordinators rigorously screened the applicants for academic excellence, relevant experience, and, most importantly, a demonstrated passion for innovation, entrepreneurship, and commercial space.
