CABAA Scholarship and Mentoring Committee Update
Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters of the 2017/2018 scholarship awards. Each year your donations and proceeds from the CABAA Golf Outing directly support the Cabaa scholarship program. This year we awarded $52,500 in scholarship funds, and over $30,000 to continuing education training awards. These awards included the CABAA Scholarships, two FlightSafety SIC Training Initials, and one FlightSafety Maintenance Training Initial.
The CABAA Scholarship and Mentoring Committee also hosted a new event to present the awards to winners in special setting. Priester Aviation hosted the event and it was well received by the winners and supporters. The committee plans to host this event again for the 2018/2019 awards to present in the same fashion. We are also planning similar award offerings next year and have begun the 2018/2019 planning.
The CABAA Scholarship and Mentoring Committee along with the CABAA Education Foundation works very hard to promote the CABAA Awards, but extra word of mouth promotion is always a big help. Many of our winners are doing fantastic things in business aviation and some are still breaking into our industry. Please look out for them at CABAA events as they could be a great addition to your department in the not so distant future. If you know anyone who would like to apply next year, applications will become available in January and they can apply at CABAA.COM.
CABAA Scholarship Committee Visits Regional Universities
CABAA Aviation Scholarships - 2017
Is hard at work spreading the word about the scholarships available.
On April 7, 2017 Brian Zankowski and Alex Kwiatkowski visited Western Michigan. Future visits include SIU and Lewis University. The deadline is coming soon, so please help spread the word.
CABAA offers scholarships to promote professional development and business aviation careers. The CABAA Scholarship was established to encourage others to reach the highest level of achievement in their aviation studies. It is bestowed upon those who demonstrate a commitment and devotion to aviation, especially business aviation, in the tradition of the CABAA Scholarship.
The scholarship committee is actively promoting Business Aviation as a viable, interesting, and rewarding career on the campuses where our future job candidates are being trained. They facilitate a meaningful connection and an on-going relationship between willing and interested students and individual members of CABAA that are able to mentor the student candidate within their discipline or job function on varying levels of commitment.
