Space Foundation plans to establish an international system of local chapters to be know as “Space is the Answer”
chapters. The purpose of establishing this network of local chapters is two fold. Firstly, the local chapters will support the mission of Leeward Space Foundation by
promoting the idea that the development of space and space resources can provide many, if not all the answers to Humanity’s
most pressing concerns. Most people know that Human Civilization faces some very
difficult challenges ahead such as; climate change, industrial pollution, developing clean energy, eliminating poverty and
many others, but few realize that there are permanent solutions to these problems to be found by developing nearby space resources.
Secondly, the network
of local chapters will help Leeward develop a Scholarship program for High School Seniors or equivalent and a separate scholarship
for college level. Each local school or community chapter can sponsor a graduating
senior or college student who will then present a paper to Leeward concerning how he believes developing space resources will
provide an answer to a particular concern facing humanity. The best papers will
earn their composers scholarship grants and will be published on http://www.Space-Is-The-Answer.Org We must make the next generation aware of the huge potential of space development, for they are the ones
who will build the infrastructure that will grow Human Civilization out into the Solar System.
The first year’s scholarships will be $1000, but plans are to grow the top scholarship to $10,000 and to offer
four other lesser grants.
process to become a “Space Is The Answer” local chapter is very easy: simply send an email to: chapters@LeewardSpaceFoundation.Org with your location and the group to be represented. The chapter will promote Leeward’s
mission by supporting as many of the fund-raising activities as possible located at: http://www.LeewardSpaceFoundation.Org/id21.html . All activities
can be used in the Unites States, but some are not available in every country. GoodSearch
and GoodShop can be used everywhere. Each chapter may conduct other fund-raising
activities as well, with prior approval of the board of directors of Leeward.
chapter will collect yearly dues of up to twenty US dollars for each member, with ten dollars passed along to Leeward as membership
dues for the parent organization. In an effort to insure that no person is excluded
for financial reasons, each chapter may waive dues for any member who signs our fund-raising pledge. In order to insure
widespread participation in the scholarship program, Leeward will also accept papers from candidates nominated by any group
or organization that will commit to participate in Leeward’s fund-raising activities.
