  1. NAAA “Ag Wings of Tomorrow” Scholarship Program: The goal of the NAAA “Ag Wings of Tomorrow” Scholarship is to strengthen the aerial application industry by helping NAAA Operators bring new pilots into the profession. NAAA will award up to four scholarships valued at $5,000 and one scholarship valued at $2,500 each year. Each applicant must be sponsored by an NAAA Operator member, and scholarship recipients may use the proceeds for flight training or aviation-related coursework at a university, college, community college or other institution of higher learning. A stipend for a trainee in an NAAA Operator-sponsored apprentice program is also permissible. The deadline is Aug. 31, 2017.
  2. NAAA Support Scholarship Essay Contest: If you are an NAAA member (or become one by June 15), the Support Committee invites you to sponsor a contestant in the 2017 Support Scholarship Essay Contest. The scholarship is not restricted to pursuing a “flying career.” Any educational pursuit beyond high school (at any age) is eligible. The competition is open to all NAAA members and their family members. The contest is also open to allied industry members and their family members. Each allied industry company is allowed to sponsor only one eligible family member per contest. The contest deadline is Aug. 15, 2017.
