Schriever Scholars Program


Schriever Scholar Program LogoThe Schriever Space Scholars program is the nation’s first year-long, space-centric IDE curriculum dedicated to developing space strategists. Sponsored by US Space Force, the Schriever Space Scholars Concentration offers an excellent professional military education across all components of the space enterprise: military, civil, and commercial. It builds on the time-tested curriculum of ACSC (that includes courses on War Theory, Leadership Development, International Security, and Joint Warfighting) while incorporating space themes into each course. It supplements this core with two Spacepower courses, unique to the concentration, that offer deep dives into space history, theory, strategy, law, and policy, and also explore the operational implications of space as a joint warfighting domain. Rounding out the students’ strategic education, Schriever Space Scholars take an elective in the fall, undertake an independent research project in the spring, and typically take three professional development group TDYs.  Some students also have the opportunity to develop a space wargame, to compete in space law moot court, or to attend an academic conference.
