National Space Society Helps Fund Expanding Frontierís Brownsville Summer Entrepreneur Academy: National Space Society and Club for the Future to Support Youth Development Program in South Texas

Washington, DC | Posted on June 24th, 2022

NSS CEO Anita Gale said, ďMr. Bezosís generous gift to the NSS extends to all humanity in spirit, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring a new generation into space-related endeavors. This is an investment in the future of humanity, and we're pleased to be working with Expanding Frontiers on their important program."

Identified as one of the most innovative programs of its kind in the country, Expanding Frontiersí Space Entrepreneur Summer Academy (SESA) will create the National Space Society-Club for the Future (NSS-CFF) Scholarís program, in which ten high school students from this yearís Space Entrepreneur Summer Academy (SESA) cohort will receive internships at Expanding Frontiers. SESA is based in Brownsville, Texas, and is offered to all regional students who are interested in space. Participants will engage with NASA experts, retired NASA engineers, NewSpace thought leaders, SESA alumni who are now professionals in the field, and NewSpace businesspeople from across the nation. Interns selected from the program will have the opportunity to work with mentors from academia and industry on space-related technology research and development. Several will be working directly with startup companies in the ExF space innovation ecosystem, an interconnected network of companies, universities, government agencies, and other entities that are creating new products and services associated with the space industry.

ďWe are excited for the new opportunities the National Space Society and the Club for the Future are enabling for our students here in the Rio Grande Valley,Ē said Dr. Fredrick Jenet, the founder and executive director of Expanding Frontiers.

SESA is currently accepting applications for the 2022 summer session running from July 11 through July 30, 2022. During the 3-week long session, students will interact with scientists, past SESA attendees, and ďastropreneursĒ about entering careers in space.
