Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship Program

Term: Summer

Internship and mentorship summer program for current juniors, seniors, and graduate students passionate about commercial spaceflight

The Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship Program connects exceptional current college juniors, seniors, and graduate students with paid, summer internships in the exciting field of commercial spaceflight, as well as with notable aerospace leaders for mentorship. The summer culminates in a memorable, two-day networking summit.

The fellows receive a paid summer internship, typically lasting 10-12 weeks, at one of the leading commercial spaceflight companies in their “host company” pool. Fellows will be matched to a position that may include assignments in engineering designs, market studies, strategic planning, policy evaluation, and business analysis and development.

Prior to the beginning of the internship, Fellows will be paired with an experienced and notable space industry leader for mentorship to make the best use of their time at the Fellowship, in addition to receiving advice for their academic and future professional careers. These mentors include engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, company executives, and many more who have contributed to the success of the space industry. In addition, the Fellow will also have the benefit of having a mentor from within the host company to assist the Fellow with their summer experience.

The summer will culminate in a summit that will bring together the inaugural class of Matthew Isakowitz Fellows in a memorable and celebratory event in one location.
