Asteroid 17744, Jodiefoster, was discovered on January 18, 1998 by the OCA-DLR Asteroid Survey at Caussols, France. It has a period of 3 years, 255 days.

It was named for American actor and director Alicia Christian "Jodie" Foster (born 1962) as a tribute for her work in the 1997 science-fiction film Contact, in which she plays a scientist who finds strong evidence of extraterrestrial life and is chosen to make first contact.
