The ACSC Schriever Space Scholars Concentration is the nation’s first year-long, space-centric IDE program dedicated to developing space strategists. Originally sponsored by Air Force Space Command and now sponsored by US Space Force, the concentration combines the time-tested warfighting curriculum of ACSC (War Theory, International Studies, and Joint Warfighting courses) with space-focused classes that offer deep dives into space history, strategy, operations, and policy. The program offers a world-class strategic space education across all levels of the space enterprise: military, civil, and commercial. In addition to coursework, the concentration typically takes three group trips, including one to Washington, DC, and one to the National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs to round out the students’ strategic education. Schriever Space Scholars graduates are capable of acting as national leaders on space questions at all levels and are highly competitive for SAASS or other Advanced Studies Group programs. All USSF and USAF personnel may apply. Students from other branches of the US Joint Forces, civilian agencies, and international officers from selected countries also attend the concentration.
