2020 AIAA Scholarship Recipients
This year AIAA was able to award three individuals scholarships to study at Oxford University for the summer of 2020! These scholarships are in memory of Phil Rogers, a former AIAA Board Chair and Rollin Baldwin, a former AIAA Board Member. Both of these individuals made a lasting impact on countless people throughout the world and would be pleased to see these educators have such a wonderful experience at Oxford University.
We would like to introduce to you our three scholarship recipients and join us in congratulating them in their efforts and work:

2019 Scholarship winner, Ms. Rasha Hamdy shares her experience and encourages others to apply for AIAA's Summer Abroad Scholarship.
The Baldwin Scholarship provides full tuition for a teacher from an AIAA accredited school to participate in 'TLab' the Oxford University Kellogg College Summer Programme. The three week program offers an intensive exposure to areas of English Language and Literature and international affairs, and is taught by Oxford University professors and teachers. AIAA teachers will join with other teachers from Europe and the USA who have been selected by the English Speaking Union to participate in this prestigious program.
More information and testimonials about this program can be accessed at ESU TLab. Early application is advised as Oxford has specific requirements for applicants.
