James A. Abrahamson Space Leader Fellowship Sponsored by the ISS National Lab Now Open

Last week marked the opening of the James A. Abrahamson Space Leader Fellowship, sponsored by the International Space Station (ISS) National Laboratory through the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space, Inc. (CASIS). This 12-month advanced learning fellowship is meant to expose undergraduate and early-stage graduate students to the burgeoning space community and promote workforce development. The fellowship specifically seeks U.S. citizens or permanent residents from underrepresented communities, with the goal of ensuring that opportunities within in the space industry are available to all.

Participation in the fellowship program will allow fellows to develop skills and knowledge to position themselves for future space-related careers. Throughout the program, fellows will work with both an ISS National Lab mentor and a subject matter expert in a field relevant to their major area of study and aerospace career interest.

The fellowship is named after Lt. Gen. James A. Abrahamson (USAF Ret.), who is widely regarded as one of the more distinguished and decorated military program leaders of the 20th century.
