Signature Flight Support, in coordination with NBAA Charities, has established the Eddie Queen Business Aviation Management Scholarship to benefit undergraduates pursuing careers in business aviation management.

Eddie Queen

The scholarship was created to honor the memory of Eddie Queen, a Signature Flight Support line service technician for 58 years. His dedication and commitment were an inspiration to all who benefited from his service.

NBAA Charities and Signature Flight Support will annually award $2,500 to an undergraduate student (sophomore or higher) who is officially enrolled in an aviation management program at an NBAA or University Aviation Association (UAA) member school. Applicants must show a passion for aviation and demonstrate superior customer service skills, as Eddie Queen did.

Scholarships will be awarded for the 2019–20 academic year, and checks will be made payable to the school. Awards will be made to U.S. citizens or permanent residents without regard to sex, race, religion or national origin.

For all NBAA Charities scholarships, applicants are limited to receiving one award per person, per year. Direct all questions about this application to NBAA’s Molly Hitch at (202) 783-9353 or
