ASE seeks to stimulate interest in science and mathematics and inspire in students a life-long commitment to education. The ASE general scholarship fund supports students and young professionals pursuing careers in the space sciences, engineering or space business administration.

The Association works closely with other space organizations and institutions to expand the pool of available new STEM graduates and to promote international dialogue on such related issues as space safety, rescue and human performance, international operational compatibility and near earth object hazards.

ASE Legacy Scholarships are administered and awarded on behalf of, and in cooperation with, the individual astronaut and cosmonaut members of the Assocation. Designed to promote and encourage scholarship and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the awards reflect the personal interests and support of the contributing astronauts and cosmonauts for and across a broad range of disciplines. Please check back with us as we develop the ASE Legacy Scholarship program, or email us for more information.

The ASE ISU Fellow

The ISU Fellowship is an ASE scholarship specifically intended to support young space professionals or students who have been accepted to the International Space University. The first ASE ISU Fellowship was awarded at the XXVI Planetary Congress in 2013.

Candidates wishing to apply for ASE Fellowships for one of the academic programs of the ISU (Space Studies Programme (SSP) or the Master of Space Science Programs) should first apply and be accepted to the International Space University.   ASE considers fellowship applicants from among those nominated by ISU, but reserves the right to request further documentation and/or interview individual candidates.

Grants are awarded by the ASE regional chapters in coordination with the international Executive Committee. Grants are paid directly to ISU on behalf of the Fellow(s). It is expected that each Fellow will have additional resources allowing completion of the program.

ASE Fellows are invited to a subsequent ASE Planetary Congress to report on the supported research activities.

2013: Ms Emmanuelle David

Ms. David in 2013 worked as a research engineer for space launcher system analysis with DLR, Germany. She graduated from Technische Universitaet Braunschweig 2010 with a diploma thesis on space debris removal, a project in cooperation with Astrium ST, Bremen. After that she was a young graduate trainee for ESA, located at the ESA Washington office. She is actively involved in the Space Generation project, an opportunity for young space researchers to network, discuss and become leaders on next generation space topics.
