Every year, in cooperation with the Department of Education, Sport and Culture, ManSat sponsors scholarships for up to three Isle of Man students to attend the United Space School in Houston, Texas.
The scholarships are awarded to the winners of an Island-wide essay competition. Essay questions for the this year's competition have been advised to the participating Isle of Man high schools.
