Four young people who are working toward goals in aviation have been named the 2015 scholarship recipients of the AOPA AV8RS Scholarship Program. The scholarship program, in its second year, will award a total of $22,000 to the recipients, who were chosen from among the membership of AOPA AV8RS, a program that makes free AOPA memberships available to teens age 13 to 18, and recognizes that "AOPA AV8RS are AOPA’s future."
This year’s scholarship awards were funded through the nonprofit AOPA Foundation, and made possible by the Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust.
Scholarship recipients are chosen based on merit, past accomplishments, a demonstrated ability to set goals, and a commitment to general aviation. The scholarship program is open to all current members of AOPA AV8RS who are pursuing an aviation-related goal, including a primary pilot’s certificate (and have not completed the FAA practical test/checkride at the time of application); study in an aviation/aerospace field through an accredited aviation program at a college/university, technical school, or aviation academy; or by attending an aviation or aerospace camp.
