The Colorado Pilots Association will grant awards to one or more applicants this year under its Annual Scholarship Program. The program is designed to recognize and assist college students who have strong interests in pursuing aviation related careers. The program is funded primarily from donations by individual CPA members and revenues derived from the CPA’s nationally recognized Mountain Flying Ground School.
Participating Academic Institutions.
The scholarships are awarded to individuals pursuing a degree in an aerospace or aviation related field at any accredited college or university in Colorado. Online schools located outside of Colorado are not eligible.
Disbursement of Funds.
Funds will be applied towards tuition in an aviation related program, excluding flight training, and will be paid directly to the educational institution.
Scholarship candidates must be enrolled or committed to enroll as students at an accredited college or university in Colorado, and must be a full time resident of Colorado.
Basis of Award.
The selection of scholarship recipients will be based on academic accomplishment, work experience, community, school and aviation related activities. Also considered are a typed, brief essay on aviation career goals, and a telephonic interview by at least two scholarship committee members. Letters of recommendation are encouraged but not required.
The application deadline will be announced soon. If you have any questions before then, please email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
