AWAM Announces 2010 Scholarship Opportunities

Application Deadline Is November 21st

The Association for Women in Aviation Maintenance has unveiled its list of available scholarships for next year, which includes a dozen programs sponsored by some of the leading names in aviation. While the programs are open only to AWAM members, they are not restricted to students, or even to women.

Among the companies sponsoring the scholarships are Abaris Training Resources, offering programs in Advanced Composite Structures: Fabrication & Damage Repair, American Eurocopter, offering in-house maintenance training courses which teach technicians how to maintain their Eurocopter Helicopter for intermediate inspections in accordance with the maintenance manual as well as a thorough understanding of the skills and requirements needed to evaluate aircraft performance following maintenance actions. These courses provide “first-hand shop work experience through on-the-job exercises," Flight Safety, which will donate a scholarship for their very popular “Principles of Troubleshooting Course”, used by major airlines, military, schools, and colleges. Designed to provide the technician with a logical approach to solving aircraft problems, it includes individual hands-on practice utilizing simulated aircraft system malfunctions, and Pratt & Whitney, which allows recipients to choose from any of the courses available at the Pratt & Whitney Customer Training Center in East Hartford, Connecticut, or Quebec, Canada, provided they meet the individual course requirements and the course is being offered during a time acceptable to the recipient.

Other scholarships are offered by JetBlue, Aviation Entrepreneur Magazine, Horizon Air, the Aircraft Electronics Association, Southwest Airlines, and other individual foundations.

AWAM is a nonprofit organization formed for the purpose of championing women's professional growth and enrichment in the aviation maintenance fields by providing opportunities for sharing information and networking, education, fostering a sense of community and increasing public awareness of women in the industry. The organization is open to both women and men.
