Washington, DC, Sept. 23, 2014 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced that NBAA Charities will offer a new scholarship to support the professional development of Certified Aviation Managers (CAMs). The CAM Scholarship, administered by NBAA’s CAM Governing Board, will include awards for both aspiring CAMs and current CAMs who are renewing their certification.

Scholarship awards may be granted in amounts that cover the cost of becoming a CAM or maintaining the credential. CAM exam candidates can apply for up to $1,225 in scholarship funds, which covers the cost of applying for the exam, the CAM Study Guide and the CAM exam registration fee. For current CAMs, the scholarship award covers the $300 cost of recertification, which must be completed every three years. 

“This is an important milestone for the CAM Governing Board to create this scholarship opportunity” said CAM Governing Board member Charles Booker, CAM.  “Not only can aspiring CAM candidates benefit from this scholarship, but for the first time, current CAMs will be able to receive financial assistance to renew their certification.”

Since 2007, the Donald A. Baldwin Sr. Business Aviation Management Scholarship has offered financial aid to individuals seeking to become CAMs. This new CAM Scholarship is the first to cover the cost of recertification for current CAMs, in addition to aiding new candidates.

The CAM credential provides a clear industry professional standard for preparation and achievement in aviation management. The CAM program is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, and is the first program of its type in the aviation industry to receive this recognition.

CAM Scholarship applications will be available online and at this year’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA2014), which is to be held from Oct. 21 to 23 in Orlando, FL. The first CAM Scholarship will be awarded in June 2015. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2015.

Those interested in making a tax-deductible donation toward funding the CAM Scholarship may contact Jay Evans, NBAA director of professional development, at (202) 783-9353 or Donations should be made before Oct. 23, 2014, the final day of NBAA2014.
