Students ages 12 to 14 may apply for Space Academy for Leading Students in Alabama, or SALSA, a Space Camp program funded by the Alabama legislature. Two students in each Alabama legislative district will receive a scholarship to attend SALSA, which promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics education along with leadership skills.  To be eligible for SALSA, students must apply for the scholarship. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center will then forward a notice of application to the members of the Alabama House of Representatives or the Alabama Senate representing the district in which the students reside. Each member will nominate two students to receive a scholarship to attend SALSA.  Travel to and from the U.S. Space & Rocket Center is not included.  To learn more, visit www.spacecamp.com/salsa  The SALSA 2022 application is now open at https://spacecamp.smapply.io/  The deadline to apply is February 21, 2022.
