Vivian Braswell

A family emergency was the unexpected financial setback that derailed Vivian Braswell’s path to graduation; however, it was funding provided by UAH’s Propulsion Research Center that got her back on track, enabling her to complete her degree and ultimately land a position with space exploration giant Blue Origin.

“If it wasn’t for that, my schooling would have been prolonged by having to work or take on more debt,” says Vivian. “Instead, it validated my success, showing that I was a good student and deserving of assistance because of my hard work.”
