I’ve noticed an increasing number of aviation scholarships popping up in e-mails, newsletters, and web sites. You’d think that the prospect of flying for free would generate a stampede of applications for these generous programs. They’re worth thousands (sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars each! But it ain’t necessarily so. In fact, I’ve known more than one of these scholarships to go unclaimed for lack of applicants. http://www.rapp.org/archives/2013/06/scholarships/

- Students and recent graduates employed at FBOs who are interested in aviation and science careers are encouraged to apply for a scholarship from the Patrick Marzitelli Science & Aviation Fund. A $3,000 scholarship will be awarded annually for flight training and science education. Applicants must be high school students or graduates with grade point averages of 2.5 or above and perform some kind of community or volunteer service. The scholarship is named for Patrick Marzitelli, a 17-year-old student in Minnesota who died in an on-the-job accident in 2010 while working at an FBO. He was an enthusiastic aviation and science student at the time of his death. Candidates for the scholarship can apply through the foundation’s website.
