MDSGC’s Balloon Payload Program is gearing up for a busy year, with three launches so far this spring and more planned throughout the summer and fall. Launches happen early in the morning, usually from Clear Spring Elementary School in Clear Spring, MD. To see for yourself what all the fuss is about, contact Professor Mary Bowden for information about attending a launch!
Regular applications for Fall 2018 scholarships will open on or around March 15, 2018. For information about the program, visit our Scholarships page. Priority is given to eligible returning students, but new applications can always be considered, contingent on the availability of funds.
