After the launch of the inaugural Calvin L. Carrithers Aviation scholarship program in 2014, Globalair.com announced at AirVenture 2015 it will continue offering its blog writing scholarship to students enrolled in any accredited university aviation program for the 2015-2016 school year.
Four students will be accepted into the program that entails writing weekly blogs sharing their flight training or aviation management experiences while being awarded a scholarship of $250 twice a semester, equaling a total award of $1,000.
Students in the inaugural launch included Tori Williams, Hayley Haning, and Matt Jones, who are all studying to become professional pilots at Eastern Kentucky University. Their weekly blog posts helped them to reflect on their training, and share advice and ideas with fellow pilots. Their $1,000 scholarship awards went towards flight fees and progressing in their training.
The application process involves a short essay detailing their career path, letter of recommendation and proof of enrollment. Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on these qualifications. They will be notified of winning by mid-August, when many go back to school and their blogs officially begin.
