Brooke Owen Fellowship Success!

(1 February 2017)

We are very pleased to report that the Brooke Owen Fellowship has chosen Alexandra (Sasha) Warren, one of our Level 2 students, to spend 10 weeks on an internship with the XPRIZE Foundation in California this summer.

"The Brooke Owens Fellowship Program is a highly competitive, paid internship and mentorship program designed to honor the memory of beloved space industry pioneer and accomplished pilot, Brooke Owens, by inspiring and training exceptional undergraduate women seeking a career in aviation or space exploration”.

Sasha was awarded the Fellowship based on her academic performance and interest in planetary geology.
