Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Student Receives Inaugural Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship

Shayna Hume, BSASE ’18, has been awarded a Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship – an internship and executive mentorship program designed to inspire the next generation of commercial spaceflight leaders.

The highly-selective program paired Hume with a paid internship at the Aerospace Corporation – a cutting-edge commercial space company developing the some of the most effective and innovative space-related hardware and software in the world. Hume will receive one-on-one mentorship from industry executives for a full year. The program culminates in a two-day summit during which the Fellows will network with leaders in the industry, visit space start-ups, and develop entrepreneurial skills.

After receiving more than 100 applications from 47 colleges in 21 states, Hume was selected as one of only 24 Fellowship recipients. The program was created in memory of an accomplished space entrepreneur, Matthew Isakowitz. It is designed to provide impactful career training and inspiration to young men and women.

During her studies at the University of Miami College of Engineering, Hume was a student leader who served as president of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, as well as an undergraduate researcher and mentor.

The University of Miami’s College of Engineering would like to congratulate Hume, and we look forward to seeing everything that she will accomplish in her future!
