Astronauts

Proving that Penn State students can do it all – and do all of it well -  music performance minors Jacob Cordell and Sylvia Biscoveanu have been named the winners of Penn State’s most prestigious awards given in the sciences.

Jacob and Sylvia are co-recipients of the Astronaut Scholarship. These awards are provided by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF), founded by the astronauts participating in the Mercury 7 space program, to recognize undergraduate students who excel in STEM disciplines. Scholarship recipients must plan to conduct research or contribute meaningfully to their fields following graduation.
