GlobalAir.com is pleased to announce the opening for application submissions for the GlobalAir.com Calvin L. Carrithers Aviation Scholarship.  The scholarship is offered to all students who are U.S. Citizens and currently enrolled in an accredited university or college aviation program for the 2016-2017 school year.

Students from around the United States have benefited from the Calvin L. Carrithers Aviation Scholarship Program after its successful launch in 2014. In 2015-2016, students from University of North Dakota, Florida Institute of Technology and Eastern Kentucky University were chosen as recipients. 

Annually, four students are awarded $1,000 scholarships that pay $250, twice a semester. As a part of the scholarship, students must share their flight training or aviation management experiences by writing weekly bogs to help inspire the next generation of aviation professionals.

Jeff Carrithers, President and CEO of GlobalAir.com, explains, “We are ecstatic with the results of the scholarship program these past two years.  It is so very clear that our industry is in need of additional aviation professionals.  We initially offered the program to pilots but quickly realized that there are many aviation professions we didn’t even consider until we reviewed applicant essays.  Last year’s recipients were two pilots and two airport management students.”

Carrithers continues,” We want to be able to give support to college students studying aviation, as well as provide them a way to share their experiences with industry peers. I believe it is extremely important for them to have a way to introduce themselves to the industry and begin networking now as they initiate their careers in such a fast-paced field.”

The application process for the program involves a short essay detailing their career path, letter of recommendation and proof of enrollment. Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on these qualifications and they will be notified of winning by mid-August. The GlobalAir.com scholarship team is welcoming any qualified and passionate aviation student to apply before August 10th 2016 for consideration.

Students and parents are also encouraged to visit the GlobalAir.com booth at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh (hangar C, booth 3015) to learn more. We look forward to working with the next generation of Aviation Professionals!
