AHS International – The Vertical Flight Technical Society is pleased to announce its 2014 Vertical Flight Foundation (VFF) scholarship recipients.
The VFF was established in 1967 as the philanthropic arm of the society. Since 1977, the merit-based scholarship program has been a great success story, with more than 400 scholarships awarded to date. Many recipients are now leaders in the vertical flight technical community. 100% of every tax-deductible contribution to VFF goes directly to student scholarships. AHS covers all overhead costs of administration and accounting, and contributes a portion of its revenue to supplementing individual contributions.
AHS is pleased to award $45,000 in VFF scholarships this year to the world’s most talented and deserving engineering students. A total of 19 scholarships were awarded this year. The following are this year’s awardees, who will be recognized at the Grand Awards Banquet at the 70th Annual AHS Annual Forum and Technology Display at the Palais des congrès de Montréal on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 in Montréal, Québec.
