Recognizing Aviation and Aerospace Innovation in Science and Engineering Award

Open: Through October 31, 2014

The DOT Secretary of Transportation, Anthony Foxx, has announced the opening of his RAISE Award to recognize students with the ability to demonstrate unique, innovative thinking in aerospace, science and engineering. In its third year, the Secretary has created two divisions within the award: 1) a high school division, and a 2) university division (both undergraduate and graduate levels). The Secretary intends to use the awards to encourage students to think creatively in developing innovative solutions to aviation and aerospace issues, and to share those innovations with the broader transportation community.

See the 2014 Federal Register RAISE announcement for current application details.
