The award from the University of Colorado Boulder will partially cover the expenses up to a maximum amount of 2500 USD incurred to attend SGFF (round trip travel via airfare, accommodations, visa costs, and the registration fees) and the Space Symposium.


Alex St. Clair (United States)

Alex St. Clair is a Master’s student studying Astrodynamics and Satellite Navigation at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

He completed his undergraduate degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the same institution. At CU Boulder, he has been involved with high altitude balloon and CubeSat projects at the Colorado Space Grant Consortium and he currently works as a Graduate Research Assistant at CU’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, where he designs, builds, and tests embedded systems for high altitude balloon instruments.

Outside of the university, Alex was a part of the inaugural Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship class, and he completed his internship at The Spaceship Company, where he worked on safety analyses and embedded software for SpaceShipTwo.

After completing his Master’s, Alex plans to work in the commercial space sector on a mix of GNC and Avionics. SGFF 2019 was Alex’s first SGAC event, and he hopes to increase his involvement with the organization.

“I am honored to have been selected for the University of Colorado at Boulder scholarship. I love my university, and it was exciting to be able to represent it amongst an international network of highly-qualified peers who also care deeply about the peaceful use of space to better humanity.“
