2017 International Student Travel Video Contest Entry
- Maria Clara Fernandes Martins
My dream is to become an astronaut and go to the International Space Station or some other space travel. Im from Brazil and Im studying abroad in Montana at Montana State University (MSU) where Im currently on my senior year of a microbiology major and a astrobiology minor. Im hoping to graduated in May 2018 but I need help to pay my tuition since my parents can't financially support me anymore(Brazil is going through harsh times). If I win this scholarship, it's gonna help me pay part of my tuition, yet not enough. A degree from MSU and the experience I'm gaining on my internship will make a difference on an application for a PhD position, which is required before applying for the astronaut training program (counted as three years of professional experience). Help me become an astronaut!
