The National Business Aviation Association annually awards $2,500 to each of two applicants pursuing careers as maintenance technicians. One award will benefit a student who currently is enrolled in an accredited airframe and powerplant (A&P) program at an approved FAR Part 147 school. The second award will benefit an individual who currently is not enrolled but has been accepted for enrollment in an A&P program. The scholarship is named in honor of retired NBAA staff member William M. Fanning, who was active in maintenance issues during his nearly 20-year tenure at the Association. Awards will be made to U.S. citizens without regard to sex, race, religion or national origin. Scholarships will be awarded in the fall of 2012, and checks will be made payable to the school. Scholarship recipients must use the funds by December 31, 2013, or risk forfeit of the award. The Fanning Maintenance Scholarship is one of several scholarships offered by NBAA to promote professional development and business aviation careers. For all NBAA scholarships, applicants are limited to receiving one award per person, per year.
1. Applicant must be a U.S. citizen. 2. Applicant either must be officially enrolled in an accredited A&P program, or have been accepted for enrollment by an approved FAR Part 147 school. Proof of enrollment or acceptance of enrollment must be provided prior to the distribution of the award.
