NASA's lucrative awards will take you to infinity and beyond, but only if you have the grades and essay skills to prove it. On top of winning cold, hard cash, recipients also win a $10,000 summer internship at the NASA Research Center. Before you get too cozy picturing yourself bragging about landing a NASA job, understand that this is one of the hardest scholarship competitions out there. Go big or go home.
