Avfuel announced that the window for its annual Pilot-in-Training scholarships and Avtrip scholarship is now open with applications available for students interested in furthering their aviation education. Through the Pilot-in-Training scholarships, Avfuel will award three students with funds for education, such as flight training, tuition fees, or licensing costs, while the Avtrip scholarship will present one member of Avfuel’s Avtrip pilot rewards program with $2,000 to pursue their aviation educational goals. Completed applications are due by September 5.
New this year, the Michigan-based fuel company has also partnered with FBO and aviation real estate operator Sheltair on the Future Takes Flight Scholarship program, which will provide six $5,000 scholarships spread across three categories: flight training, aviation technician, and continuing education. The application window for this program opened in December and will close on June 1.
The recipients of all three scholarship program awards will be announced in October at NBAA-BACE in Orlando, Florida.
