Muncie, IN (PRWEB) April 21, 2017
The AMA is happy to announce that $48,000 in scholarships will be awarded this year to 11 high school graduates from across the nation. The scholarships are created through funds donated by model aviation organizations and individuals, AMA members, and a portion of AMA member dues.
Scholarship criteria are set by the AMA Scholarship Committee, which is made up of model aviation pilots and enthusiasts. The committee evaluates each applicant and ranks him or her based on GPA, community involvement, model flying experience, and participation in aeromodeling competitions.
AMA and the AMA Foundation wish to thank each family that has contributed to the memorial scholarships, as well as the hundreds of other donors to the scholarship program. Without their generous contributions, these scholarships would not be possible.
