The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) has launched its new scholarship programme to highlight the importance of internships and impact in the field of aerospace, aviation and space. The application process is currently open now until 31 May.

The Futures Scholarship Programme focuses on increasing the probability of employment in the aerospace sector through offering extra opportunities for pre-employment development. This could be a paid internship, work experience opportunity, or an award for teams making an impact to inspiring the next generation.

RAeS is welcoming submissions from all nationalities, who also meet the following eligibility: 1) those who aspire to a career in aerospace but who are financially constrained in conducting an activity to improve their employability (eg internship, specific course, apprenticeship), 2) teams and individuals working with young people in a STEM or aerospace-related context, 3) those undertaking an apprenticeship, and 4) those working at PhD level who are assessed as showing passion, commitment and excellence, and likely to have a demonstrable impact in the field of aerospace.

If you would like to apply please ensure to submit your application by 31 May 2023. If this opportunity is not quite suitable for you but you know someone who might be interested, please do forward this information on and continue to support us in building future talent of aerospace, aviation and space professionals.
