Every year LASP makes the following special awards to outstanding students at the University of Colorado.
The Charles A. Barth Scholarship in Space Research
In honor of LASP’s founding director, this scholarship is awarded to LASP undergraduates with studies focused on space research. Two to three students will be awarded each year to help with tuition costs. Awards are typically on the order of $1300 per student.
The John T. Gosling Endowed Fellowship
On receiving the National Academy of Sciences Arctowski medal, LASP scientist Jack Gosling donated funds to start a fellowship to award $2000 to graduate students at the University of Colorado to study of the Sun, the study of the solar wind, the study of the Sun-Earth connection, and the study of the solar wind’s interaction with planetary magnetospheres.
