Freddie’s Memorial Scholarship

Hi All,

It is my wish that you are well and having a great spring/summer!

I spent a lot of time trying to decide how/what I could do to memorialize Freddie in the space community. Finally, I made a decision. I hope you think it was a good one.

Here is a link to the Memorial Scholarship in Freddie’s name at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL.

Freddie loved going to this special place and this Scholarship​ is funded​ for 5 years.

​One child will be chosen to attend Space Camp each year.
​The child must be in Middle School, need the money for tuition, apply to Freddie’s Foundation to receive the necessary funds to attend Space Camp for a week during the July 4th time…Freddie’s birthday being July 4.
The ​chosen​ child may be any color, from any country and any gender. The only criteria requested that they display an entrepreneurial spirit and other characteristics that Freddie ​was known for during his lifetime.

Thank you if you can give even a small amount. A child will appreciate your kindness and will learn that dreams can come true. Hopefully, they will also learn that Space is the future for the survival of mankind…a concept that Freddie believed. He dreamed an impossible dream; he started with nothing but an idea and that idea spread throughout the worlds of many. I hope another child can dream that dream as well.

Thank you,
Linda Bourgeois

  2. In 2007 I took sixteen UK, high school students to Space Camp in Huntsville.
    Myself and another teacher spent the most amazing ten days with space educators, scientists and counsellors, watching the children have the best, utterly marvellous experience.
    It was a privilege to be a part of a terrific team.
