NextGen RASC Scholarships

The RASC NextGen Committee is excited to present the inaugural NextGen Post-Secondary Scholarship and Community Leadership Fund, aimed towards supporting and engaging youth members in their academic pursuits, centres and communities.



NextGen Post-Secondary Scholarship

The NextGen Post-Secondary Scholarship will be $1000 CAD awarded to a student enrolled in full-time (minimum 9 credits) post-secondary studies in a space-related STEM field (this is inclusive to a wide range of majors, so long as your academic interests/career goals involve space). Students who apply must be citizens or permanent residents of Canada and be attending a post-secondary institution in Canada during the 2021-2022 academic year. Application requirements include your most recent transcript, the contact information for one reference, and a short essay, maximum 750 words, answering the following questions: "What inspired you to pursue a degree in a space-related STEM field? What challenges have you encountered in your academic experiences thus far, and how did you overcome them?".

Apply here! Applications are due May 28th, 2021.


Community Leadership Fund

The Community Leadership Fund will provide $500 CAD to one RASC youth member based in Canada to put towards an astronomy-based community outreach project. Projects can be current or planned for the future, but they must be community-oriented and space-related. A typed proposal (maximum 500 words) describing how the funds will be allocated is required to be considered.
