The International Space University (ISU) is the doorway to a career in the space sector. Created by Todd Hawley, Peter Diamandis and Bob Richards in 1987, the ISU runs the prestigious Summer Session Program (SSP) as well as several Masters degree programs at the University campus in Strasbourg, France. This year, ISU SSP will take place at the Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) between 26 June to 27 August.
Attendance by Irish students to ISU has fallen dramatically during the economic downturn following cuts in funding for education. Inspire Space recognizes the pivotal role that space education plays in creating a space industry in Ireland and therefore provides financial support to Irish students who wish to attend ISU. Inspire Space provided sponsorship support the only Irish student to the ISU Summer Session Program in 2016 and again made sponsorship available to support a student in 2017. We look forward to continuing this into the future. Funding is split between the Summer Session Program (SSP) and the Masters Program (MSS/MSM) in Strasbourg, France.
