SmallSat Student Scholarship Competition

The Annual Conference on Small Satellites held in Logan, Utah has a student competition called the Frank J. Redd Student Scholarship Competition. This competition has been help several years so far. It it open to graduate and undergraduate students, and involves writing a paper. Finalists present their papers at the conference. In addition to the chance of winning a significant amount of scholarship money, working towards the competition and potentially winning a prize offers good resume material. I haven't gone to it, but the SmallSat Conference comes highly recommended from many sources. It should be a good networking opportunity for students that are serious about small satellites and related ground infrastructure and applications. The competition site has information for those interested in contributing to the scholarship competition fund.
