Astronism in the Marshall Islands refers to the presence of the Astronist religion in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, as part of the worldwide Astronist Institution.

Astro-Marshallese philosophy, or Marshallese Astronism refers to the presence of Astronism in the Republic of the Marshall Islands under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of the Marshall Islands, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of the Marshall Islands oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. The Marshall Islands is split into twenty-four atolls and islands, and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Majuro. This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory. It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement. History of Astronism in the Marshall Islands. As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of the Marshall Islands. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, the Marshall Islands had a population of 370 Astronists.
