The AMFA National Executive Council (NEC) is accepting applications until February 28, 2020, for two AMFA Scholarships for 2020. Scholarships will be $2500 and will be payable to each recipient’s institution of higher learning.
Last year’s scholarships were awarded to students of South Seattle Community College in Seattle, WA and Hallmark University in San Antonio, TX.
“Contributing to the education of the next generation of Aircraft Maintenance Technicians is one of AMFA’s ambitions,” said Bret Oestreich, AMFA National director. “We are honored to be offering this opportunity as costs have risen to obtain a FAA Airframe & Powerplant license.”
Those who apply must be currently enrolled in a school or university to gain their Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) license, be a US Citizen, and submit a 500-word essay about the importance of the FAA Hotline, ASAP, NASA ASRS, and safety reporting system as they relate to the aviation industry. The application and further information can be found on the Education page of the AMFA National website.
