 - August 8, 2019, 5:43 PM

NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Committee (SDC) has raised $37,272 from donor companies for its annual training scholarships, which will be awarded this fall. Among this year’s contributing companies are AC-U-KWIK, Carolina Aviation Professionals Association, Jet Aviation, Million Air, Collins Aerospace, OneSky (Flexjet), Signature Flight Support, and Universal Weather & Aviation.

The SDC is dedicated to promoting education and training as a means for individuals to increase the professionalism of their positions, and created the scholarship fund in 1997 to further that objective. Since then, the program has awarded more than $700,000 in industry-sponsored cash grants to nearly 200 deserving members who use the funds in support of a variety of professional development initiatives.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old and submit an essay, resume, and two signed letters of recommendation along with their application.

The window for scholarship applications closes on October 11, and the recipients will be announced at NBAA’s annual Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference on March 10-13, 2020 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
