Two Hopkins engineers, Sophia Porter and Courtney Schmitt, are among 41 young leaders selected as 2018 Brooke Owens Fellows.

The Brooke Owens Fellowship Program is an award-winning, volunteer-led program awarding internships and senior mentorship to exceptional undergraduate women seeking careers in aviation or space exploration. After completing a rigorous and highly competitive application and multi-phase interview process, each Fellow has been placed into a paid summer internship at one of the nation’s leading aviation or space companies.

Courtney Schmitt, a mechanical engineering senior, will be working for Virgin Galactic this summer. She will be graduating in May this year, and staying at Hopkins to complete her Master’s degree in Robotics.

Sophia Porter, a dual physics and applied mathematics & statistics major, will spend the summer interning at Blue Origin in Washington. Sophia is also a member of the Johns Hopkins Baja team.
