VanAllen Helps Project Liftoff in Initial Ascent & Beyond

O’Maley College of Business. Project Liftoff is dedicated to helping Bracey succeed by providing an academic scholarship, mentoring opportunities, leadership development courses and more.

Students in the David B. O’Malley College of Business are preparing for careers working in aerospace, aviation, and space industries, and Project Liftoff aims to develop a leadership pipeline by recruiting high-performing incoming freshmen from diverse backgrounds.

“VanAllen heard about the Project Liftoff program at its inception and eagerly came on board to contribute,” said Jeff Agur, VanAllen owner and CEO, “We’ve been committed to bettering the aviation industry for over 25 years, and this program aligns with our mission.” Agur and his team at VanAllen are excited to see the first Liftoff Scholar begin his freshman year and will continue to support Bracey throughout his time at the university.
