Arizona students are now welcome to apply for the 2011 Angel
MedFlight Scholarship for Excellence in Aviation. The college
scholarship winner will receive $3,000 towards tuition for a
relevant program at an Arizona college or university. Angel
MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance will award this college
scholarship in August.
This is the second year that air medical transportation leader

MedFlight established the scholarship in conjunction with the

and resourcefulness in students pursuing a degree in an
aviation-related program at an Arizona college or university.
Andrew Cochran, an Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University student

received the 2010 scholarship.

such an exemplary recipient as Drew,” says Angel MedFlight
President and CEO Jeremy Freer, "We are pleased to once again
partner with the AZBAA to offer the 2011 scholarship. Angel
MedFlight has always been committed to excellence through
