Hello, I'm a 14 year old high school freshman who's looking for a career in astrophysics. The basic questions I'd like answered are: * What are some universities close to Virginia that offer programs in Astrophysics? * Are there any scholarships I can look into for financial help? * What sort of classes should I have completed by the end of high school to look my best for universities? * Are there any opportunities during the summer for physics related programs in the Virginia area that are relatively affordable? (e.g. no more than $500-$750) Basic Info: * I am currently taking Honors Algebra 2/Trig with plans to finish Calculus and Computer Math * I am currently taking Gifted Earth Science with plans to finish AP Physics * I am currently taking German 1 with plans to finish up through German 4, and French and Latin 2 * I am currently taking Honors World History 1 with plans to finish AP World History, AP US History, and AP Government * Also, I will try to get into The Governor's School for Science & Technology in the Programming Strand, which will give me 17-24 college credit for Thomas Nelson Community College or Christopher Newport University if completed successfully. Thanks, and any and all help would be appreciated!
