NASA:

As some of you may recall, NASA offered an aeronautical scholarship annually. However, NASA's scholarship program appears to have moved to a different website and it has changed to some extent as well.

The new website lists scholarships for STEM students.  This website doesn't indicate there are any scholarships open at the moment.  However, you may want to bookmark the website and mark your calendar to keep an eye on the website in 2014.  This will enable you to see if the website is updated with new opportunities available either in the Spring or Summer of 2014.  If you are interested, please visit the following website for more information:

IMPORTANT:  This website also appears to focus on recruitment of undergraduate and graduate students for internships, fellowships and scholarships.  So, if you are interested in NASA, this site may also be a great resource for a variety of reasons.
