The Astronaut Al Worden ‘Endeavour’ Scholarship is a nation-to-nation education initiative to encourage young people to pursue careers as engineers and explorers.
Named for Al and his spacecraft, the Endeavour Scholarship pays all expenses for a week-long, hands-on astronaut training experience at Space Camp at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. It is administered by Kallman Worldwide as a not-for-profit organization, and is funded by proceeds from every Kallman USA Partnership Pavilion at leading aerospace and defense exhibitions around the world, plus sponsors, donors, and partners.
In the decades following his historic 1971 flight, Al applied his business acumen, technical talents, and passion for innovation to a wide range of interests in industry, academia, and public service. Al was an active advocate for the future engineering workforce – in all disciplines – and the communities in which they live and work around the world.
The Al Worden Endeavour Scholarship perfectly encompasses Al’s lifelong passion to inspire the next generation of space explorers. From his appearances on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood after his flight, to all his STEM and outreach work across the globe, the Endeavour Scholarship is a fitting legacy going forward.
