SSPI Mid-Atlantic Chapter teams with SES Government Solutions and SimbaCom to develop the next generation of space and satellite leaders

January 23, 2019


SSPI’s Mid-Atlantic Chapter has teamed up with SES Government Solutions (SES GS) and SimbaCom to fund two SSPI-MA Chapter scholarships for 2019.


SSPI-MA funds scholarships at three local universities to help students pursuing careers- in space or satellite-related fields with their undergraduate or graduate studies. Since 2010, the Chapter has provided scholarship donations directly to George Mason University, George Washington University and The University of Maryland as well as supporting monetary prizes for a student competition each spring where students from these respective schools present their engineering projects to a panel of industry executives. Since these programs began nine years ago, SSPI-MA has provided more than $88,000 of scholarship and prize money.


The donations from two satellite industry leaders and SSPI members, SES GS and SimbaCom, augment the Chapter’s fundraising efforts which are largely driven by the annual Winter Fundraiser and Golf Tournament.
