Attention all High School Juniors – Join the Montana Aerospace Scholars today!

Do you love all things aviation and space related? Want to study it in depth while earning college credits in high school? Hoping to join a community that shares your passion for exploration? You should join the Montana Aerospace Scholars (MAS) program!

Applications are open now and are due October 17.  

The Montana Aerospace Scholars (MAS) program was designed in partnership with NASA, University of Washington, and the Museum of Flight. The goal is to give high school juniors across the Treasure State access to unparalleled learning opportunities in Earth and Space Science, space exploration, and related careers.

The MAS program is offered in two parts; the first is a free online course offered in partnership with NASA, Museum of Flight and the University of Washington. Participants who complete the first phase are eligible to participate in a six-day summer residency at the Montana Learning Center in Helena. There, students have the opportunity to discover the Treasure State’s aerospace industry through behind-the-scenes aerospace company tours and presentations from STEM experts.

Students who complete Phase One of the program have the option to earn five science credits from the University of Washington. In addition to lessons in Earth and Space Science and NASA history, MAS offers opportunities to interact with STEM industry professionals, hands-on engineering activities, and a national alumni network which tracks student progress from high school until after college graduation. Many of our MAS alumni are currently involved in a STEM college or career pathway!
