The International Aircraft Dealers Association is accepting applications through Sept. 1 from business aviation students for scholarships. Grants funded by the IADA Foundation will range from $1,000 to $5,000. 

The IADA Foundation supports philanthropic programs that enhance the industry, including providing scholarships for college students studying for careers in business aviation.

IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling, commented: “The IADA Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public charitable organization. We are working with more than 20 colleges and universities to offer individual scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students seeking further education leading to professions within business aviation.”

The IADA business aviation scholarship program was established to benefit university students seeking a career in business aviation, specifically within corporate aircraft sales, marketing, finance, legal, and insurance disciplines. The application is available online at International Aircraft Dealers Association | IADA

Participating schools are assigned a keycode specific to their organization, which applicants must obtain from their school’s financial aid office to access the application. Students can use the code to login to IADA.aero, complete the online application, upload transcripts and submit an essay about their passion or inspiration for aviation. Students are selected based on a points system, with the highest-ranking students across multiple schools awarded scholarships.

These grants are available to full-time, undergraduate (freshman through senior) students (taking a minimum of 12 hours per semester), as well as graduate students. Applicants must have a 3.0 minimum cumulative GPA on a 4.0 grade scale (high school GPA for freshman applicants).
