SGAC-GSA – New Navigation Horizons Scholarship
The European GNSS Agency (GSA) in cooperation with the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) has organised the Young GSA – New Navigation Horizons Scholarship. This video competition is a great opportunity for European students and young professionals to share their views on the possibilities that Galileo in a multi-GNSS world can bring to society, business and European integration.
Participants are asked to create a 30 second video complemented by a 400-word essay focused on answering one of the following questions:
- With the introduction of Galileo, more GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) satellites in a ‘multi-GNSS world’ means better positioning and navigation accuracy will be available than ever before. How can these benefits be harnessed in the future?
- In which way can the European Space Programmes (Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus) strengthen the European Union?
This video should be submitted along on the same topic and the applicant’s CV (including Date of Birth and country of citizenship) for consideration.
The winner will receive an award of up to 2000 USD in order to attend the following events:
The award will cover round trip travel to Colorado Springs, lodging, visa costs, and the registration fees for both events.
- All submissions must be in English.
- The video (uploaded on YouTube or any cloud storage site), CV and essay (unlocked PDF document under 5 MB) shall be submitted via the Scholarships Submission Form. You will need to be logged in as an SGAC member to access this page - http://www.spacegeneration.org/log-in.
