The Greater Miami Aviation Association, the longest serving industry association in Florida (since 1927), has announced today the launching of its newest effort in promoting Aerospace studies in South Florida.
The Dedicated Scholarship Program will allow Corporations, Organizations, Foundations and private individuals, to award scholarships to young aviators from our area, who are seeking careers as pilots, aircraft engineers, mechanics & technicians, control tower operators, administrators and managers. All such students will have to adhere to the current scholarship criteria set by the
GMAA- Batchelor Foundation and these are:
- Active enrollment in one of the 8 accredited schools
- Completion of at least 30 credits
- Maintaining a suitable GPA (3.0 or higher)
- US citizen or Resident Alien
- Must demonstrate financial need
To become a dedicated Scholarship Sponsor, the corporation or individual must pledge to the GMAA foundation, which is a 501c3 organization, a minimum of $100,000 over 10 years. In return, two (2) scholarships per year will be named after the Sponsor, and they themselves will award the scholarships to the recipients, and be recognized at our annual gala.
Should you be interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Aviv Tzur, President of the GMAA.
