AEA Educational Foundation Scholarship Program
Since its inception, the AEA Educational Foundation has awarded more than $1.5 million to students seeking careers in the aircraft electronics and aviation maintenance industry, as well as technicians from AEA member companies.
Scholarship applications are available for the 2014-15 school year beginning Oct. 1, 2013. The deadline to submit scholarship applications is Feb. 15, 2014. Numerous scholarships are available, ranging from $1,000 to more than $35,000 each.
A new scholarship to be awarded this year is the Monte Mitchell Scholarship, which honors Mitchell’s service of more than 40 years to the general aviation industry. Mitchell first served as the AEA executive director and later as president of the association from 1977 to 1996. With Mitchell’s leadership, the AEA Educational Foundation was created in 1990 to enhance, promote and secure the future of aviation and the AEA by furthering the education of students, technicians, members of the AEA and others as determined by aviation industry needs. This scholarship will be awarded to an AEA member and will cover a full AEA International Convention & Trade Show registration, including travel and hotel expenses.
In addition, the AEA also introduces the Chuck Freeland Memorial Scholarship to honor Freeland’s impressive career of more than 30 years and an unparalleled passion for flying and youth involvement in aviation. This new flight training scholarship will be awarded to an AEA member.
