Helicopter Foundation International (HFI) is accepting applications for the 18 scholarships the organization awards to students in the helicopter industry. Interested students can go toÂ www.helicopterfoundation.orgÂ and download an application for the scholarship of their choice.
HFI understands that as the costs of obtaining the necessary education to work in the rotorcraft industry continue to increase, fewer students seeking a career in the helicopter industry will financially be able to do so. HFIâ€™s scholarship program can help ease that financial burden and ensure that todayâ€™s most dedicated students can realize their dream.
Donâ€™t miss your chance to ease the burden of your education costs!
HFI offers four different types of scholarships. The Commercial Rating Helicopter ScholarshipÂ will be awarded to pilots who have their private license and are in the process of attaining their Commercial Rating. Up to four scholarships will be awarded. Second, HFI will be awarding the Maintenance Technician Certificate Scholarship to students who are studying to become maintenance technicians. Up to six scholarships will be awarded. Up to seven Bill Sanderson Scholarships will also be awarded for students in the maintenance technician field. Finally, the foundation will award the Michelle North Scholarship for Safety, a scholarship for pilots who have already attained their commercial rating and have shown an outstanding penchant for safe flying and practices.
Applicants must meet all necessary prerequisites and provide a completed application by Nov. 30, 2012 to be considered. CheckÂ the website for further details and make sure you are eligible to be selected! Send applications by email toÂ firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ if possible, but if necessary they may be mailed to: 1635 Prince Street, Alexandria, VA 22314.
HFI believes that helicopters will play an ever-increasing role in our society, and we are greatly looking forward to being able to help those who have begun their path toward a rewarding career in the rotorcraft industry. But remember, we wonâ€™t be able to help unless we get your application!
