3. You must have a well-defined research program in aerospace-related sciences or aerospace-related engineering as described by your essay and you must clearly demonstrate the relationship of your research to aerospace. Your research program must be verified by at least one letter of recommendation.

Candidates are evaluated by a committee of Zonta educators and scientists.
