At the end of September 2012 three AYAA members were awarded the AYAA-SGC Scholarship to attend the Space Generation Congress (SGC) and International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Naples, Italy. Abhijeet Kumar, Utpreksha Somalwar and Jack Yeh were also given a chance to participate in the International Students Education Board (ISEB) Program during IAC. The 11th SGC meeting in Naples was a very fruitful experience for all three students and they returned with very positive feedback.
We are pleased to announce three winners of the Australian Youth Aerospace Association - Space Generation Advisory Council (AYAA-SGAC) Australian Futures Scholarship! The winners, Utpreksha Somalwar, Jack Yeh and Abhijeet Kumar, will attend this year's Space Generation Congress and International Astronautical Congress in Naples, Italy.
