2024 Catalog Eighteenth Edition

Do you have an aviation related scholarship you would like to see listed in this catalog or shared with students?

UAA will list scholarships free of charge in our publications, list them on our website, and distribute them electronically to our membership.

Electronic distribution includes:

• Collegiate Aviation Scholarship Catalog

• UAA Connect monthly newsletter

• Blast emails to students and faculty

To qualify for no-cost listings a scholarship listed must be made available to UAA students to further their collegiate education and must meet both of the following criteria:

1. Specifically aviation related.

2. Available to assist students pursuing a degree in aviation at any member college or university of their choosing.

We do not distribute general scholarship opportunities that are not aviation specific (such as photography, dog owners, or pageants), and we do not list or distribute scholarships specific to non-collegiate aviation (general aviation). Nor do we publish scholarships requiring admission to a single college or university as an award criteria. Georgraphic residence, veteran status, gender, minority, or other applicant specific criteria are permitted.

If you have scholarships available that meet this criteria, contact UAA at hello@uaa.aero and we will be happy to send you a form to have your scholarship included in the next issue.

• Write a great essay AND keep essays within the specified word count.

• Don’t miss the deadline and start early.

• Make sure your application package is complete and ALL requested material is included. Incomplete application packages will not be reviewed.

• Do not include things that are not requested in the application – i.e. photos, videos, etc.

• Proofread and review thoroughly before submission and having a mentor review for completeness prior to submission.

• Don’t ignore small awards. Small awards can add up. Plus, the larger the award, the more competition you’ll face.

• Try, try again. Keep trying even if you don’t win a scholarship right away. Save copies of every application that you complete so you don’t have to start from scratch every time.

He stayed through a series of mergers, to retire from Alaska Airlines in 1993. Carol was from the Chicago area where she attended business school.
