AWAM’s Scholarship Program supports the diverse skills required in the field of Aviation Maintenance & Technology. AWAM began its scholarship program in 2002 with four scholarships awarded to eight recipients.
This year alone, AWAM awarded $157,600 in scholarships to 30 recipients. With the assistance of our incredible sponsors, this program continues to grow to support our industry and the needs of the future. Scholarship opportunities are not only for initial students or women. Many are for those already working in the field, transitioning from the military, and open to men as well.
The AWAM National Scholarship Co-Chairs are Stephanie Morris and Stacey Rudser. They work with industry partners, corporate sponsors, and private donors to facilitate the Scholarship Program. Scholarships are awarded every year at an invitation only breakfast event sponsored by Pratt & Whitney at the Women in Aviation International conference.
