Avfuel Corporation announces the 2020 scholarship applications for the 3rd Annual Avfuel Pilot-in-Training Scholarship and 22nd Annual AVTRIP Scholarship are now available at Avfuel.com/Scholarships.
Due on September 7, 2020, by 11:59 p.m. EST, the date change gives applicants more than four months to complete their submissions as opposed to two months in previous years.
“Making applications available earlier allows for more flexibility all around—for our applicants in creating mindful submissions and our scholarship committee in reviewing an ever-growing pool of applicants,” said Marci Ammerman, vice president of marketing for Avfuel Corporation.
The Avfuel Pilot-in-Training Scholarship was designed to award three students with funds to use toward furthering their aviation education. The 2020 scholarship will be in the amounts of $1,500, $1,000 and $500. These funds may be used for, but not limited to, flight training, educational tuition fees and a new license.
The AVTRIP Scholarship was designed to award one current AVTRIP member (new member enrollments apply) with funds to use toward furthering his or her aviation education. The scholarship will be in the amount of $2,000. These funds may be used for, but not limited to, flight training, educational tuition fees, and a new license or rating.
“We’re looking forward to reading through this year’s submissions,” said Ammerman. “The stories we are privileged to read from our applicants are truly inspiring; every year the choice becomes more and more difficult to make. It is an honor to help support the future of aviation by helping four aviators obtain their goals.”
