Rising Leaders in Aerospace

What I really like about AIAA is their commitment to students. They have so many opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to get involved in the aerospace and astronomy communities.
—Kathie L. Olsen, Founder and Managing Director, ScienceWorks and winner of the 2014 AIAA Public Service Award

AIAA's Rising Leaders in Aerospace is a special initiative that provides a forum for young aerospace leaders to learn from and engage with others. Activities typically include a reception, speed mentoring, a lunch and learn session, and a keynote address.
