As part of our commitment to workforce development, PNAA has established a scholarship fund to assist students who wish to attend educational programs directly related to aerospace. We have set an aggressive goal of raising and distributing $50,000 in scholarships, providing students with a minimum of $1,000 scholarships. $25,000 in scholarships were awarded at PNAA'2 2013 Aerospace Conference.
