The General Aviation Manufacturers Association is accepting applications for two student scholarships that recognize academic excellence and come with $2,000 cash prizes.
Graduating high school seniors who have been accepted to and will be enrolled in an aviation degree core program at a university or college are eligible to apply for the Edward W. Stimpson Aviation Excellence Award, named for a founder and past president of GAMA.
GAMA also will award the annual Dr. Harold S. Wood Award for Excellence to a college student who is a flight team member at a National Intercollegiate Flying Association (NIFA) member school.
The award, named for the founder and past executive director of NIFA, comes with an engraved propeller trophy, in addition to the cash prize. Applicants will be evaluated on academic skills, extracurricular activities, and an essay about their plans to pursue aviation in the future.
Applications for both scholarships are due by April 14. More information or an application may be obtained by sending an email to GAMA.
