SCAA Awards Scholarships

The South Carolina Aviation Association SCAA scholarship program will provide limited assistance for South Carolina students who wish to pursue a career in the aviation industry. The objective of the scholarship fund is to promote the aviation industry in South Carolina. Scholarship funds will be provided up to a maximum of $500 for one semester of tuition and books. Funds will be paid to the institution for tuition and books only. It is the student’s responsibility to provide SCAA with appropriate bills and scholarshipdocumentation for payment. No funds will be paid to the student directly.

The Scholarship Committee of the SCAA will review all applications and make recommendations to the board of directors. Participating students must maintain an overall grade point average of 3.0 out of 4.0 or its equivalent.  In order to be eligible for the scholarship, students must be recommended by a member in good standing with SCAA. Requirements and qualifications may be added or deleted by the SCAA Board of Directors’ as they deem necessary. Students may reapply each year, but first time applicants will receive preferential consideration.

Once an application has been received, it will remain on file and in contention until all funds have been expended. Applicants will receive letters of notification once his or her application has been either declined or approved. Download a scholarship application on SCAA’s website.

 


Nominate an honorable individual for the SCAA Hall of Fame…

Established in 1991, the South Carolina Aviation Hall of Fame honors pioneers and leaders in the aviation industry who have made significant contributions to the development, advancement or promotion of aviation and have close ties to the State of South Carolina.

Up to three nominees for the SCAA Hall of Fame honorees can be inducted each year and one Aviator of the Year. These individuals will be awarded and honored at SCAA’s 2017 Annual Conference in February. Each nominated individual must be of good character. The individual’s contribution to aviation must be substantial and performed with a high degree of excellence, above and beyond the performance of one’s job or political position. The individual’s contribution may be a single gallant event or achievement over time that has made a lasting impact on aviation. A single gallant event will be defined as an event, which was brave, spirited and honorable. Examples are William Farrow and Ronald McNair.

Nominees shall be reviewed by the appropriate FAA or DOA officials to ensure there are no concerns or reasons why the person should not be nominated. Nominations shall expire after the first consideration and must be resubmitted for future consideration. The individual nominated must have been born in South Carolina and made their contribution to aviation in this state or elsewhere; OR have been a native of another state and made their contribution to aviation in South Carolina. Nominations must include verifiable documentation of the individual’s contribution to aviation to include the following: A biographical resume (as detailed as possible), documentation, clippings, citations, and awards regarding the contribution to aviation.
