VIRGIN GALACTIC ANNOUNCES NEW SCHOLARSHIP TO CELEBRATE THE LAUNCH OF GALACTIC UNITE’S NEW SOUTH AFRICA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME
On Mandela Day
In celebration of the wonderful Nelson Mandela on Mandela Day, Virgin Galactic and Galactic Unite are thrilled to announce a new initiative, inspired by the great man himself. The premise of Mandela Day is that every one of us has the ability to make a positive impact in the lives of others. Galactic Unite, inspired and driven by Virgin Galactic’s Future Astronaut community, has already fostered a number of scholarships for students around the world in the STEM+ areas of education. Today, Galactic Unite are excited to announce a new strand of this – the Galactic Unite South Africa Scholarship Programme. To mark the launch of this, the staff of Virgin Galactic are supporting the initiative with a new scholarship . They have pledged to raise the necessary funds to enable the STEM+ education of a high school student in South Africa for three years, along with an engagement programme with Virgin Galactic staff providing mentoring and support. In doing so, Virgin Galactic looks forward to supporting Galactic Unite in their vision that in this new age of commercial space travel, educating the future generations on the advances in science and technology will help unlock answers to global challenges and change the world for the better.
