We chat all things space, Tiffany’s TODAY show appearance and why The Patti Grace Smith Fellowship is integral to diversity in the aerospace community.
The Patti Grace Smith Fellowship was announced to the public on October 6, 2020
The mission of The Patti Grace Smith Fellowship is to provide a meaningful, effective pathway into successful aerospace careers and future aerospace industry leadership to people whose race and ethnicity has made them the subject of systemic bias.
Named for the Former FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation Chair, Patti Grace Smith. Patti Grace Smith’s tenure covered the most exciting and dynamic period in the commercial space industry’s growth, with Patti overseeing the licensing of the first inland spaceport, the first private human spaceflight, and the first launches of Elon Musk’s privately developed rocket, the SpaceX Falcon 1.
This year the Fellowship has selected 39 fellows for its class of 2022. Read about that here https://www.pgsfellowship.org/blog/class-of-2022
