2019 Delegate Application

Delegate Applications are accepted from 17 December 2018 to 27 January 2019 23:59 MST (UTC-7).  You must be an eligible and registered member of the Space Generation Advisory Council in order to apply to the Space Generation Fusion Forum. Becoming a member of SGAC is free! You can read more about the benefits of membership, and create an account.

The delegate selection process for SGFF is highly competitive. Information you provide will be used to evaluate your suitability as a delegate at the 8th Space Generation Fusion Forum.

Applicants will be evaluated specifically in the areas of motivation, experience, industry awareness and insights, passion, and enthusiasm.

Specifically, we will be evaluating your responses to the following questions:

  • Why are you interested in participating in SGFF? (50-100 words)
  • Please describe your relevant academic, professional, and/or volunteer experiences that you will bring to SGFF. (Max 200 words)
  • What do you view as the greatest challenge to humanity’s continued expansion into Space in the next ten years, either from a technology, business, or policy standpoint? (Max 200 words)
  • What is the most exciting potential use of Space to you? (Max 200 words)

You are welcome to write a paragraph or a series of bullet points for each question. Remember we can only assess you on the information provided, so feel free to add details where appropriate (e.g. “interned at JSC for 3 months in mission operations” vs “completed internship” when discussing experiences, or “I would like to show how the energy industry and aerospace can collaborate” vs “I have new perspectives” when discussing unique insights).

A copy of all the SGFF Delegate application and Global Grants application questions are available here.

You should hear about the result of your application sometime during early February. Successful applicants will receive an email with further instructions, as well as information on how to pay for registration.
