The Souza Award honors the memory of ASGSR’s long-time friend and leader by encouraging the next generation of student investigators to develop their own ideas for the future of gravitational research. 

Student members of ASGSR — high school, undergraduate, and graduate – are encouraged to develop creative research proposals in the fields of space life and physical sciences, pairing the experiment with a public outreach plan to share the excitement of the field with others.

The top proposal will receive a free spaceflight for their payload on Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket and a $1,000 grant to prepare for flight.
