Emergent Awards Three Undergraduate Students 2017 WiRED Scholarships

The Women in Research and Engineering Development (WiRED) program at Emergent Space Technologies, Inc., seeks to promote the retention of women undergraduate students in aerospace engineering and related fields of study, to incentivize them to complete their degree, and to identify, train and recruit bright women engineers as potential future hires for our company. We hope to achieve these goals through two separate components of the program: a scholarship awarded to qualifying women at the start of their Junior year of their undergraduate education and a paid summer internship at an Emergent facility awarded to qualifying women who have completed their Junior year of their aerospace engineering degree. The 2017 WiRED Scholarship recipients listed below will each receive $1,000 for the 2017-18 academic year.
