Calling all students ages 9-18 year of age!

Train to be an astronaut, an airplane pilot or a robotics engineer in a five-day immersive, intensive, educational and fun camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center! Since 2001, more than 50 New Hampshire children and teens have traveled to U.S. Space Camp & Rocket Center, in Huntsville, AL, for a week of simulated astronaut or pilot training, thanks to the Alex Higgins Memorial Space Camp Scholarship. And three more will get to go in 2023! Would you like to be one of them?

The Alex Higgins Memorial Space Camp Scholarship was founded in 2000 in Memory of Alex Higgins of Bedford, NH, who died in March 1999 from injuries that resulted from a backyard accident shortly before his 13th birthday. Alex was a wonderful young man who loved life and was filled with good will toward all he met.

In 1994, he attended U.S Space Camp. and the scholarship was created by the Higgins Family and McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center to give deserving NH youths the same opportunity that Alex had, the potentially life-changing experience of a week at Space Camp.

Application deadline: Wednesday, March 1st, 2023.
