As part of PNAA’s commitment to workforce development, we have maintained a scholarship fund since 2009. Eligible students enrolled in participating aerospace programs are granted scholarships of a minimum of $1,000. The program has grown substantially since its inception, and we were able to award $31,250 in scholarships at 2020’s Aerospace Conference. Since PNAA began their scholarship program, they have raised over $280,000, helping more than 150 students pursue their dream of entering the aerospace industry.
We are very grateful for the support of our corporate Scholarship Donors who have each contributed at least one $500 scholarship to support a student enrolled in an aerospace program at a Pacific Northwest institution.
