Global Alliance

Global Alliance facilitates collaboration across the global space ecosystem, connecting commercial, education and government stakeholders for open dialogues and joint programs. Building international partnerships, Global Alliance engages with embassies, dignitaries, consulates, commercial enterprises, government space agencies, educational institutions, think tanks, accelerators, incubators, trade associations and corporate donors around the world. The Global Alliance team opens the door for consulting agreements, program adoption and philanthropic sponsorship for Space Foundation’s primary operating divisions: Center for Innovation and Education and Symposium 365.

Advocating for space exploration and space-inspired industries here on Earth, Global Alliance operates out of Washington D.C., to connect, collaborate and consult regularly with U.S. congressional members and staff, public policy leaders, and space advocacy groups.


Washington, D.C. Operations

The Space Foundation Washington Operations Team conducts a broad range of programs to educate policymakers about the complex space-related topics that must be addressed to ensure that the space industry is well-informed on space policy issues.

We use resources to educate decision-makers and congressional staff on civil, commercial, and critical national security space policy issues. We facilitate and coordinate with officials from government, industry, academia and the international space community. We serve as a trusted source of information and data for these constituents and promote the message that investment in space capabilities benefits all peoples and that America must remain the leader in space.

The Washington, D.C. office of Space Foundation offers unpaid research and government affairs internships to students during the spring, summer, and fall semesters. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. For more information, please visit the Internships page.
