Keval Bollavaram, a biomedical engineering undergraduate student (Class of 2021), was recently awarded a scholarship from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF). Each year, the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation provides more than 50 scholarships to the brightest and most talented college students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The prestigious Astronaut Scholarship is known nationwide for being among the largest merit-based monetary scholarships awarded to undergraduate STEM juniors and seniors.
“This is definitely a big award. You also join a great network that allows you to get mentorship from scientists, astronauts, and past alumni from the program,” said Bollavaram. “Having the opportunity to do research at Tech and learn so much from that is great, but having an opportunity to get mentorship from this astronaut scholarship is something I’m super excited about.”
ASF is known for having a life-long relationship with each astronaut scholar and provides them with mentors, professional and personal development, networking with astronauts, C-suite level executives and industry leaders to help advance their careers.
