A very special thank you to Pratt & Whitney Customer Training Center in Hartford, CT for their continued sponsorship of our AWAM Scholarship and Awards Breakfast and to Fran Gudelski for arranging the breakfast for us each year.

AWAM’s Scholarship Program supports the diverse skills required in the field of Aviation Maintenance & Technology. AWAM began its scholarship program in 2002 with four scholarships awarded to eight recipients.

For 2017, AWAM is pleased to announce we will be awarding over $185,000.00 in scholarships.

In 2016, AWAM awarded over $165,000 in scholarships to 36  females and 8 males. The year before, AWAM awarded over $130,000 in scholarships to 24 females and 12 males. With the assistance of our incredible sponsors, this program continues to grow to support our industry and the needs of the future. Unique scholarship opportunities are not just for initial students or just for females. Many are for those already working in the field, transitioning from the military, and for guys as well.

AWAM is continually working hard to offer more scholarship opportunities for next year! Thank you to all of our corporate and individual sponsors for another successful milestone breaking year filled with wonderful opportunities for our future aviation work force!
