Astronaut Scholarship recipients gather for Innovators Week in Orlando

Aug. 16 kicks off Innovators Week for 68 undergrad students who are recipients of scholarships from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF), an Orlando-based nonprofit that distributed over $1 million this year.

The four-day event will be held at the Hilton Orlando on Destination Parkway, and all the scholarship recipients will be there, as the foundation covered their travel. Also, professional development seminars will feature accomplished luminaries such as retired NASA astronaut Eileen Collins.
