Judging:

  • Judging for AIAA Foundation-sponsored awards and scholarships is done by the Scholarship Selection Subcommittee of the Student Activities Committee.
  • Judging for Section or Technical Committee-sponsored awards and scholarships is done by sponsoring Technical Committees or Sections.
  • All decisions made by the scholarship selection committee are final.
  • If a selection committee determines there is not a qualified applicant for a particular year, the scholarship will not be awarded.
  • Plagiarism – any essay responses or collateral materials should be the original work of the applicant. Any portion of an application that is found to be plagiarized will disqualify the application from any further review.
