The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) and the International Council of Air Shows Foundation (ICASF) have established the ICAS Foundation GAMA Scholarship. The annual scholarship will award $2,000 in funds to a college student seeking an aviation-related degree such as aircraft maintenance, aeronautical engineering, aviation business or professional pilot.

“We are thrilled to be teaming with the ICASF to provide this substantial scholarship to future leaders in our industry,” said Pete Bunce, GAMA’s president and CEO. “Both of our organizations feel it is imperative to work together to help provide a qualified and stable workforce for our industry.”

“Both GAMA and the ICASF have a shared mission to help people to pursue their dream in aviation,” said Dale Drumright, ICAS Foundation chairman.

“We are excited to collaborate with such a forward-thinking organization as GAMA to start our first educational scholarship.”
