The GlobalAir.com Calvin L. Carrithers Aviation Scholarship is now accepting applications.After its initial launch in 2014, a total of 24 aviation students have been awarded the scholarship, many of whom are now making a positive impact on driving the industry forward. The Calvin L. Carrithers Aviation Scholarship is awarded to four US Citizen-students enrolled in an accredited University/College Aviation Program during the 2020-2021 school year. Applications must include a letter of recommendation and a short essay. This essay should detail the applicant’s interest in aviation, future career path, and how they intend 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 2019, students from the University of Nebraska Omaha (Nicole Lund), Purdue University (Austin Fields), Southern Utah University (Savanna Paulsen), and Arizona State University (Cameron Sansone) 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 training.

Jeff Carrithers, President and CEO of GlobalAir.com explains, “The scholarship program produced great results this past year. As the aviation industry takes great strides to encourage a career in aviation, we wanted to provide support for this great initiative in any way possible. We are excited to be able to offer the next generation of aviation professionals with 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, 2020. 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/
