CHICAGO AREA BUSINESS AVIATION ASSOCIATION (CABAA) SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS PROMOTES STEM EDUCATION PROGRAM IN WISCONSON
In 2018, CABAA, through its Education Foundation, will fund a scholarship in the Young Aviators Program of Racine, WI. Young Aviators is a STEM-based program designed to get teens ages 14-18 interested in aviation. It runs for 5 days and includes simulator training, hands on aircraft training, as well as actual in-flight training. Young Aviators is non-profit and led by volunteers, many of whom have ties to CABAA and business aviation. CABAA is proud to once again support this outstanding organization just north of the border!

2017 CABAA Type Rating Scholarship Recipient Hits V1!
2017 CABAA Type Rating Scholarship Recipient Hits V1 - "scholarship has been put to great use!"
I was a 2017 CABAA Type Rating Scholarship Recipient and went through CE-560XL SIC training in October. I am contacting you today with exciting news. Just yesterday I did three takeoff and landings in an XLS and can officially add the type to my certificate. They have offered me a position as a contract pilot flying on my days off as well!
The Citation training also helped me prepare for my January visit with Flight Safety International! I was typed on the Gulfstream IV on January 21st and have a full time GIV First Officer position with a 135 operator based in TN.
I just wanted to reach out and let you know that the scholarship has been put to great use! Not only did it prepare me for GIV school, but I also get to fly the aircraft on a normal basis.
I hope all is well, Boiler Up!
2018 CABAA Scholarships - Application and Information
On behalf of the scholarship and mentoring committee, thank you for taking the time to consider a CABAA Scholarship. Each year CABAA distributes over $90,000 of scholarship funds in support of students achieving their academic and career goals. We offer financial scholarships for graduating high school students attending an aviation college and undergraduate college students. For graduating college seniors we offer various professional training awards to help the applicant get their “foot in the door”.
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.
