Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop (TVIW, Inc.) is proud to present our 2019 Scholarship Program, to provide two undergraduate scholarships and one graduate-level scholarship for qualifying students.

The $2,500 scholarships will this year include the Tim Bolgeo Memorial Scholarship, supported by Baen Books, as well as scholarships sponsored by Rob and Ruann Hampson. The scholarships are merit-based, and require all applicants to complete an essay with their application forms. The deadline for all applications is May 15, 2019.

“The Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop was created to foster and assist the study, research and experimentation necessary to make human interstellar travel a reality, with untold benefits to life on Earth,” said TVIW President Emeritus John Preston. “We can imagine no better way to demonstrate that goal than the creation of these scholarships, helping new generations of thinkers, builders and explorers to set their sights on the stars.”

Applicants for the undergraduate scholarships must be high school seniors in the southeast United States (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, or Virginia) who plan to pursue their first undergraduate degree in a STEM related field at any accredited, four-year American college or university. Applicants for the graduate scholarship must be full-time college or university students majoring in a STEM related field, and seeking a graduate degree in science from an accredited college or university in the United States.


We thank all of the students who apply for one of these scholarships. Please consider following TVIW as we help make interstellar missions possible for a future generation to go to the stars!
