The deadline for the 2015 Schedulers & Dispatchers Monetary Scholarship has passed. The application for the 2016 scholarship will be available online by summer 2015.

The NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Committee is dedicated to promoting education and training as a means for individuals to increase the professionalism of their positions. To further this objective, NBAA created the Schedulers & Dispatchers Scholarship Fund in conjunction with several donors:

  • AC-U-KWIK
  • Jet Aviation
  • Rockwell Collins Flight Information Solutions
  • Signature Flight Support
  • Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc.

Scholarship recipients will be announced at the NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference (SD2015), which will be held from Feb. 3 to 6, 2015, in San Jose, CA. Funds may be awarded for amounts up to $10,000 per applicant.

Schedulers & Dispatchers Scholarship awards will be redeemable under the conditions established by NBAA and its donors, and applicants are limited to receiving one award per person every other year; i.e., recipients of the 2014 scholarship are not eligible to apply for the 2015 awards, but they will be eligible to apply again in subsequent years. Scholarship recipients must complete all professional/educational training by March 2017, or risk forfeit of the award.

A completed application package, which includes signed application form, one essay, one resume and two letters of recommendation, must be received by NBAA no later than 5 p.m. ET on Sept. 26, 2014, to be considered for the scholarship. All applicants will be notified of award outcomes by Dec. 1, 2014.
