The Heinlein Society exists to honor the prestigious legacy Robert Anson Heinlein left behind. This Scholarship opportunity was launched to honor Heinlein’s word to “Pay It Forward”. As the cost of education gets more expensive, Heinlein plans to give back to the community by providing financial assistance to those in need.
Applicants will need to submit a 500-1,000 word essay on one of several available topics:
Most of the Heinlein estate and literary legacy is devoted to commercial space activities (the mission of the Heinlein Prize Trust). Given that focus, consider Heinlein’s “The Man Who Sold the Moon”, and other works. Will our future expansion into space be government initiated, or private/commercial? Which is better? Which will ultimately be the way forward?
Robert Heinlein said “The golden age of science has yet to begin.” Evaluate this statement compared to your technical field.
Discuss the advantages to the human race of a permanent settlement on the Moon or Mars.
The expansion of social media has led to widespread placement of devices by which your movement and private conversations can be monitored. Social media has also accelerated the clustering of like-minded interests into largely non-interacting ‘tribes’—the so-called ‘metadata’ gathering. Can you find and comment on the Heinlein stories that?
How might advances in your chosen field of study affect how people live 50 years from now? What changes, good or bad, might society see?
