The Gerald A. Soffen Memorial Fund Committee is pleased to announce the creation of travel grants for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing studies in fields of space science and engineering. The travel grants, in the amount of $500, will enable student recipients to attend professional meetings to present their research. Jerry Soffen, a biologist by training, led a distinguished career in NASA, including serving as the Project Scientist for Viking and an architect for the NASA Astrobiology Program. The travel grant awards will continue Jerry's dedication to educating and involving future generations in space science and engineering pursuits.
