Third Year That AZ Students May Apply For $3,000 Award
Angel MedFlight's Scholarship for Excellence in Aviation is now open to students pursuing a degree in an aviation program at an Arizona college or university. Applications are being accepted through June 4, 2012. For the third consecutive year, Arizona's aviation students will have the chance to apply for a $3,000 scholarship courtesy of Angel MedFlight's Scholarship for Excellence in Aviation.
The award, established in 2010 by air medical transportation leader Angel MedFlight in partnership with the Arizona Business Aviation Association (AZBAA), is available to students pursuing an undergraduate or post-graduate degree in an aviation-related program at a two- or four-year Arizona college or university.
"As an international air medical transport provider, we have the unique opportunity to impact the aviation industry not only globally and nationally, but also on community and individual levels," says Angel MedFlight President and CEO Jeremy Freer. "This scholarship gives students a chance to be resourceful, share ideas and take an active role in shaping their educational experience and ultimately their careers."
The annual Scholarship for Excellence in Aviation was created to support innovation and leadership in Arizona's aviation students. Andrew Cochran, the 2010 recipient, is an Aeronautical Science senior at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Ariz. The 2011 scholarship winner, Matthew Grega, is a first-year Aeronautical Engineering student, also at Embry-Riddle.
Applicants must submit a video, completed application, resume, school transcript and two recommendation letters. The scholarship committee will make its selection in August and funds will be disbursed directly to the recipient's college or university. The scholarship will be awarded to a U.S. citizen without regard to sex, race, religion or national origin. All entries must be postmarked by June 4, 2012.
