Nikki Kukwa Memorial Aviation Camp
This summer the International Women’s Air & Space Museum (IWASM) is partnering with Kent State University to sponsor a unique camp opportunity for high school young women. The Nikki Kukwa Memorial Aviation Camp will convene July 20-22, 2008 at Kent State University in Kent, OH. Named for a promising female aviation student at Kent State who passed away in 2006, the IWASM/KSU Nikki Kukwa Memorial Aviation Camp (NKMA) is the ultimate “mother-daughter” career exploration experience for girls interested in aviation-related fields.

During two and a half days interacting with KSU faculty from the Division of Aeronautics and touring flight-related facilities, participants will be exposed to in depth information about career opportunities in the air or space, with aircraft or at airports. In addition, each student will have the opportunity to take a short flight with a certified pilot. Housed together in a state-of-the-art dormitory, mothers who accompany their daughters will be introduced to academic opportunities available at Kent State in all fields. They will tour facilities, learn about admission requirements, the application process, tuition, room and board, financial aid, specialized programs and services. This information will help them assist their daughters in planning for the future.

There is no cost for participation in the camp. It is funded through a grant to IWASM by the Alcoa Foundation. However, the selection process will be highly competitive. The application deadline is April 30, 2008.

Should you have any questions please contact IWASM at (216) 623-1111. Remember that women can soar to success in whatever career they choose. The sky is the limit, but the choice is yours!
