AAR Announces EAGLE AMT Fellowship

Aids Rock Valley College Career Pathway Program

In an effort to grow the necessary talent for Aviation’s ever-growing maintenance demands, Rock Valley College in Rockford, Illinois will soon offer a fellowship program for students building their careers.

Partnering with AAR, they created the fellowship to offer a cash award, to be granted to ten students and recipients who work a minimum of two years with AAR. The funds can be used to cover the costs of tuition, fees, materials, and are annually renewable for those students in good standing. 

AAR’s Fellowship has a focus on the five core values it says make up the EAGLE: Ethics, Airworthiness, Greatness, Leadership, and Engagement. Fellows must meet specific eligibility requirements, such as being a prospective student of Rock Valley College, enrolled in their Aviation Maintenance Program, and plan to work at AAR’s Rockford MRO location upon attaining their graduation. 

“We are proud to announce this fellowship program, which builds upon the strong relationship that we already have with Rock Valley College,” said John Holmes, AAR President & Chief Executive Officer. “It is vital for the continued safety of the aviation industry that leading maintenance providers partner with educational institutions to increase the knowledge and skill of the workforce, not just in technical areas, but in leadership, problem solving and teamwork skills as well.”

The EAGLE Career Pathway Program creates a streamlined, organized route from high school, to AAR, and beyond, offering programs in secondary education, skill bridges for military members, sheet metal programs, and new A&P program offerings for students throughout their training.
