One of the ways in which SGAC empowers its young professional and student members is by facilitating access to the world’s major space conferences. SGAC has partnered with ispace to bring one student or Young Professional to attend the 8th Space Generation Fusion Forum (April 05 – 08)  and Space Symposium 35th  (April 08 – 11) in Colorado Springs, USA.

The selection process was difficult to narrow down to only one candidate from a pool of talented applications but we are proud to announce KangSan Kim as the winner of the ispace scholarship. The value of the award is $600 which can be put to either of the following expenses: registration fees, travel, lodging or visa costs associated with the attendance of these events.
