What do Brooke Owens Fellows receive?
Brooke Owens Fellows receive a paid 10- to 12-week summer internship at one of our host institutions. Fellows will be matched to specific and meaningful job openings at exciting aerospace and aviation organizations. Summer 2017 internships will be hosted by entrepreneurial space access companies, non-profit aviation and aerospace organizations, and aerospace technology policy & analysis companies.
Compensation varies based on geography, but all Brooke Owens Fellows are guaranteed a living wage plus a travel stipend.
Prior to beginning their Fellowship, each awardee will also be connected with two experienced aerospace industry mentors--one at their host company, plus another mentor elsewhere in the industry. Our hand-picked mentor group includes some of the most senior leaders in the aviation and space industry.
Each Brooke Owens Fellow will also be connected to their rest of their intern class and, eventually, to the Brooke Owens Fellowship alumni community network.
During the summer, all participants will be brought together to attend the annual Brooke Owens Fellowship Conference, a gathering co-located with the Future Space Leaders conference in Washington, DC. Fellows will participate in group events with other Fellows, meet several of our mentors, and attend the Future Space Leaders conference.
Following the summer term, each Fellow will create a brief video (or other shareable communication medium) on their experience and lessons learned. From those submissions one Fellow will be selected to attend an industry conference, to represent all the Fellows in their class.
