The Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship Program is designed to provide impactful career training and inspiration to young men and women who embody Matthew's passion for commercial space and democratizing the space frontier.  It is open to students who, at the time of application, are college juniors, seniors, or graduate students who intend to pursue a full-time career in the commercial spaceflight industry. Applicants must have either earned an engineering degree or be working towards one at the time the Fellowship begins.  A diversity in experience and academic interests will be highly encouraged as it supports the applicant's interests in commercial space.

Note that due to export control regulations at the Host Companies, internships will be restricted to US citizens or US permanent residents (green card holders).
