The International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) is accepting applications directly from business aviation students for scholarships through September 1. Grants funded by the IADA Foundation will range from $1,000 to $5,000.

The IADA Foundation has arranged with 20 participating colleges and universities, Vaughn being one of them, to offer individual scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students seeking further education leading to professions within business aviation. 

“The IADA business aviation scholarship program was established to benefit university students seeking a career in business aviation, specifically within corporate aircraft sales, marketing, finance, legal, and insurance disciplines,” said IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling. “This year we have streamlined the process by allowing students to apply online.”
