The GlobalAir.com Calvin L. Carrithers Aviation Scholarship is now open for applications from students pursuing an aviation degree from a College or University within the United States.

After its initial launch in 2014, a total of 26 aviation students have been awarded the scholarship, many of whom are now making a positive impact in their local aviation communities.

The Calvin L. Carrithers Aviation Scholarship is awarded to four students enrolled in an accredited University/College Aviation Program in the United States during the 2021-2022 school year.

Applications must include a short essay and applicants have the option to include a letter of recommendation. This essay should detail the applicant’s interest in aviation, future career path, and how they intend to complete their aviation program. 

Scholarship recipients will be required to maintain a weekly blog in which they highlight their experiences with flight training, course work, and their continued participation in the aviation community.

In 2020, students from the University of Bowling Green State University (Divinity Price) and the University of North Dakota (Jacquelyn Emery) were hand-selected by the scholarship committee to each receive the $1,000 award.

The scholarship will be awarded in increments of $250 twice during the fall semester and twice during the spring semester to fund flight fees and progress the student’s training.

Jeff Carrithers, President and CEO of GlobalAir.com explains, “We are proud to offer this scholarship program again this year as a way to support future leaders in the aviation industry. We are excited to be able to offer the next generation of aviation professionals the necessary means to further their educations.”

The scholarship committee is encouraging qualified and passionate aviation students to apply before the deadline of August 15th, 2021. Scholarship winners will be notified no later than September 1 of their selection and acceptance into the program.

The application can be accessed at www.globalair.com/scholarships/
