Kentucky AAUW and branches, with Morehead State University (MSU), are sponsors of the Sixth SpaceTrek Camp at MSU campus in July, 2017.  SpaceTrek camp had 24 graduates in 2017.  Morehead State University is 1 out of 5 Universities in the nation that offers a BS degree in Space Science.  Graduates in Space Science are always in demand and have no issues with unemployment.  The Louisville AAUW Member Fundraiser was online for the first time in the summer of 2017.  All donations tax deductible to the extent provided by United States tax laws.  There were additional sponsors from Louisville and also from other areas in Kentucky.
