Applying for scholarships is a big job, but it’s certainly worth your time in the long run. If you are actively involved in model aviation, you should plan to apply for an AMA scholarship to help pay for college. We’re looking for students who participate in our great hobby of aeromodeling… but that’s not the only thing. Candidates who win AMA scholarships usually share the following traits:
They work hard in school and achieve good grades.
They show leadership in school, work, or other community involvement.
They are active participants in model aviation as pilots, builders, competitors, and club members.
Here are some tips for making sure you know exactly what the AMA Scholarship Committee looks for in a winning candidate.
Plan early. If you’re not already an AMA member, become one as soon as you can.
Keep track of your achievements and activities throughout high school.
Tell us the details of your modeling experience!
How has model aviation affected YOU?
One last thing– PLEASE TYPE your application! Hand-scribbled notes do not give the sense of pride and precision that a good modeler and a good student should have.
