Aviation Scholarships

Posted on October 30th, 2012 by Bryanna Davis

Going to a college or university is expensive. American students struggle with paying the cost of tuition, books, lab fees, room and board. They often graduate in debt with student loans since college can cost thousands of dollars. International students who want to attend the best schools to study aviation might find themselves in a similar situation. Luckily, there are many aviation scholarships available to international students. Through searching the web and talking with a financial aid advisor from your chosen aviation school, you have the opportunity to find aviation scholarships that fit your needs, whether it’s helping pay for tuition, books, an apartment or even some gas money. These scholarships can affect how to choose your aviation school, since many offer thousands of dollars of aid.

A good place for international students to start looking for aviation scholarships is through our free college scholarship search as well as other organizations that are associated with the aviation field. The University Aviation Association’s website lists many different types of scholarships. They have a section for scholarships that are linked to the University Aviation Association. They also have a section that lists other places to find scholarships.

Other aviation organizations that offer scholarships for international students aspiring to work in the field of aviation are the Aircraft Electronics Association, the AOPA Air Safety Foundation, the AV Scholars, the National Air Transportation Association, the National Business Aviation Association, Women in Aviation International and the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association.

There are also a variety of other scholarship websites that cater to students with all majors. You can sign up for their free scholarship services and search for scholarships based off of your major, year in school and skills.

The best schools in aviation might also offer scholarships. Did you play a sport in high school? Are you part of an international club? Did you graduate with honors? All these things can help qualify you for a scholarship. Some colleges will give you a full ride if you play a sport for them. Check with the school of your choice about other scholarships available to international students. Some schools might offer you more scholarship money than another which makes how to choose your aviation school a little bit easier.

It can be difficult to figure out how to choose your aviation school. But there are many different aviation student scholarships available to help international students. Different websites offer many aviation specific scholarships while others allow you to search through their database for aviation scholarships. These scholarships can help narrow down which schools to apply to.
