The Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) has established a $500 aviation maintenance scholarship through the Northrop Rice Foundation.
The development of a qualified technical workforce has long been one of ARSA’s top priorities as members routinely list a shortage of skilled labor among the industry’s biggest challenges. In ARSA’s 2009 member survey, 65% of respondents reported difficulties in finding skilled technical workers.
To be eligible for the award, students must be attending a Part 147 aviation technical school and submit all the materials listed on the general application.
