William Cooper Gilbert '16 established the Aerospace Payload Program Directorship Scholarship in July 2016 to support a merit-based scholarship for undergraduate students who are dedicated to taking on a directorship role within the Balloon Payload Program in the Department of Aerospace Engineering.
Mr. Gilbert benefited immensely from his experience working with Dr. Mary Bowden through the Balloon Payload Program, a subset of the Department of Aerospace Engineering's Space System Lab. As the operations director for a year-and-a-half, William was able to directly apply what he learned in mechanical engineering classes to his role.
