Fish awards Space Camp scholarships to 3 SD students

The law firm Fish & Richardson recently selected three San Diego middle school students -- Mario Rodriguez Alves, Kevin Nguyen and Gicel Abraham -- to receive full scholarships to attend the U.S. Space & Rocket Center Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala., this summer.

The goal of Fish’s Space Camp Scholarship program is to get middle school students excited about the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Fish attorneys select the scholarship winners based on a written application and an in-person interview. Each year, Fish sends 33 students from economically disadvantaged areas along with teacher chaperones to Space Camp.

Fish associate Daniel Chan leads the program in San Diego.

The San Diego students were selected from the Preuss School UCSD, a unique charter middle and high school for low income, highly motivated students.

The scholarship winners will spend six days at Space Camp experiencing simulated space shuttle missions, participating in programs on space exploration and learning about mission control.
