It is to our discredit as a society that so many bright young minds are not given the opportunity to succeed in the fields of their choosing because of financial hardship. For low-income students, often things like books or transportation can be the difference between staying in school or taking on a prestigious internship and dropping out. This is especially true of the sciences, which require a lengthy, expensive education.
Fortunately, organizations like Project Space exist to fill in the gaps that other scholarships may not cover. Originally known as Friends of ARCC, Project Space works to create opportunities for students of the Arecibo Remote Command Center (the world’s largest radio telescope) and the Center for Advanced Radio Astronomy in the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. All funds raised go to help with summer programs, internships, travel, and other expenses that the students may incur in their educational pursuits.
