Applications for two NBAA scholarships focused on the maintenance profession are now available online. Sponsored by the NBAA Maintenance Committee, the Maintenance Technical Reward and Career Scholarship (Maintenance TRACS) provides a wide range of training courses that benefit those currently working or aspiring to work as maintenance technicians, including aviation military personnel transitioning to business aviation. The Fanning Maintenance Scholarship benefits two applicants pursuing careers as maintenance technicians via A&P programs at approved schools.
NBAA's scholarship program, generously supported through Member donors, offers nearly $100,000 annually in cash awards as tuition reimbursement for enrolled students, and nearly the same amount in monetary and training awards for working professionals in business aviation, including pilots, maintenance professionals, schedulers, dispatchers, flight attendants and flight technicians.
Individuals who have received NBAA scholarships have gone on to even more successful careers in business aviation. “It’s very rewarding to see where these professionals have started and where they are today,” says NBAA Director, Operations Jay Evans, who coordinates NBAA scholarships. “Helping one another in this industry is what a career in business aviation is all about.”
Take advantage of these offerings to ascend in your aviation career; apply for an NBAA scholarship today.
