National Aviation Academy Awards Aviation Maintenance Scholarships

Charles E. Taylor Scholarship Is Now Available For 2020-2021 School Year

Winners of National Aviation Academy’s Charles E. Taylor Scholarship have been awarded for the 2019-2020 school year, and applications are now being accepted for 2020-2021. This scholarship recognizes and encourages students pursuing careers in aviation maintenance, as well as promotes the future of aviation and, specifically, highly-trained airframe and powerplant (A&P) mechanics.

Charles E. Taylor was an American inventor, mechanic, and machinist. He built the first aircraft engine and was a vital contributor to mechanical skills in the building and maintaining of early aircraft. Known as the “Father of Aviation Maintenance,” Taylor exemplifies the hands-on skills necessary to drive innovation into the future. National Aviation Academy’s High School Scholarship is named in his honor.

After careful consideration, $7,000 in scholarship funding was awarded by National Aviation Academy to students from J.W. Mitchell High School, St. Petersburg High School, East Bay High School, F.W. Springstead High School, Palm Harbor University High School, Osceola Fundamental High School, and Taylor Academy. Recipients were selected based on their performance and drive as a student, and their understanding of the demand for and value of hands-on skills.

The Charles E. Taylor Scholarship is now available for the 2020-2021 school year. Changes to this scholarship will expand eligibility to individuals in additional counties and to GED recipients. Awardees can apply scholarship funds to tuition at National Aviation Academy’s Tampa Bay or New England campus. Furthermore, up to 10 additional $1,000 scholarships have been added for the upcoming year, increasing the total scholarship funds available to interested students to $20,000.
