SWF Supports Newly Founded Brooke Owens Fellowship Program

Monday, July 31, 2017

Providing mentoring, conference leadership, and individual copies of the Handbook for New Actors in Space for each participant, Secure World Foundation has been an active partner in launching the new Brooke Owens Fellowship Program. Created to honor Dawn Brooke Owens, an aerospace professional whose life and career were cut sort when she was just 36 years old, the fellowship program provides paid internships for 36 young women who are actively preparing for careers in the aerospace sector. SWF Executive Director Michael Simpson serves as one of the volunteer mentors in the program and provided leadership as a study group coach and panel participant at the First Brooke Owens Fellowship Conference from July 13-15 in Washington, DC. Dr. Simpson’s team took on the challenging task of proposing a system for detection of potentially hazardous asteroids and comets.
