(This amendment provides $340,000 GF each year for the Virginia Space Grant Consortium to expand the Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars Program (VASTS) to offer the Virginia Aviation Scholars program (VASP), a program for students grades 10-12. The program is at no cost to the student, and provides a Fundamentals of Aviation online course for Career and Technical Education and dual enrollment credit for at least 200 students each year. High-performing students would participate in a one-week residential summer academy post course completion. Two academies are proposed for a total of 80 participants, including flight experience. The program is based on a Joint Commission on Technology and Science recommendation.)
