As noted in the ASEF mission, our relationship with the active AAS and SW organizations will be to serve as the charitable arm and to raise funds for scholarships, fellowships, and internships for AAS and SW members. As such, the ASEF board will remain self-directed but always aware of its over-riding mission to aid in the educational and leadership development goals of the AAS and SW organizations. Currently, the ASEF board is working in conjunction with the AAS-SW Alumni Outreach Team to foster relationships to help further our own missions.
