The Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter of the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA) is holding its 15th Annual DFW Chapter of PAMA Golf Classic on Oct. 6 at Iron Horse Golf Course. The fundraiser directly supports the chapter’s scholarships.
The chapter has partnered with the Tarrant County College Foundation (TCCF) to offer a full scholarship to at least one student every year. However, this goes beyond just the classes leading to the Airframe and Powerplant certificate. The scholarship pays for the tuition, student fees, textbooks, and all of the FAA examinations (written, oral and practicals). These are all accomplished at Tarrant County College Northwest Campus, Aviation Department. The cost for a full scholarship is approximately $6,500.
The winner of the merit-based scholarships is chosen by a selection committee set up by the college. The scholarship is open to anyone who meets the criteria, which are available at PAMADFW.com.
Chapter officials note they are always looking for hole sponsors and major raffle donors to support this just cause. Our mission to educate, train, and provide encouragement to our industry’s aviation technicians does not waiver.
