Employees at FBOs interested in aviation and science careers are encouraged to apply for scholarships from the Patrick Marzitelli Science & Aviation Fund.
Two scholarships of $3,000 each will be awarded annually, one for flight training and another for science education. Applicants must be high school students or graduates with grade point averages of 2.5 or above and perform some kind of community or volunteer service.
The scholarships are named for Patrick Marzitelli, a 17-year-old student in Minnesota who died in an on-the-job accident in 2010 while working at an FBO. He was an enthusiastic aviation and science student at the time of his death.
Candidates for the scholarship can apply through the foundation’s website.
