WCA to Present $30,000 in Aviation Scholarships at NBAA
Mississippi-based Women in Corporate Aviation (WCA) will present nearly $30,000 in scholarships to winners of its scholarship contest at the upcoming NBAA meeting and convention in Orlando, Fla. The deadline to apply for WCA scholarships is Sept. 30.
“There are quite literally a plethora of corporate aviation jobs available that these scholarships can help one move closer towards being qualified for a job or actually help in achievement of getting a job,” said Lisa Lewis, vice president at WCA. “Currently, the industry is looking heavily for aviation maintenance candidates with appropriate maintenance licenses as well as avionics training.”
In 2011, WCA provided nearly $50,000 in scholarship opportunities and is looking to match that in 2012. The scholarships are intended for men and women in career fields related to business aviation.
