NASA's research programs and inspire them to pursue a career in
aeronautics," said Jaiwon Shin, associate administrator for the
Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in

NASA expects to award 20 undergraduate and five graduate scholarships
to students in aeronautics or related fields. Undergraduate students
entering their second year of study will receive up to $15,000 per
