December 27, 2016 – The AMFA National Executive Council (NEC) is pleased to announce that we are currently accepting applications for the 2017 AMFA Scholarship. We are excited to further note that we have added an additional scholarship of $2500, bringing our total to two recipients. Previous scholarships have been awarded to students of Tulsa Technology Center, Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
“Assisting in the education of the next generation of Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) is one of AMFA’s ambitions,” said Bret Oestreich, AMFA National Director. “We are delighted to be offering this opportunity as costs have risen to obtain a FAA Airframe & Powerplant (A & P) license.”
Those who apply must be currently enrolled in a school or university to gain their Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) license. They must be a US Citizen and will need to submit a 500-word essay expressing why they chose aircraft maintenance as a career. Applications and further information can be found on the Education page of the AMFA National website.
