Scholarships and Grants

The WAMA Board is pleased to announce that there are four scholarship/grant opportunities in 2022 to further the education of airport professionals, undergraduates in aviation management, airport internship programs and to encourage community aviation education. We encourage member airports to apply for these scholarship and grant opportunities, and to contact their local high schools and community organizations to let students and members of the public know about the career and community education opportunities through WAMA. Applications are accepted February 1 - March 31, 2022. However, the deadline for the Internship Grant has been extended through June 30, 2022! Please email to Scholarship/Grants.

We look forward to your interest!

Best Regards,

Robert Hodgman
Chair, WAMA Scholarship Committee

"I am currently enrolled as a student at Central Washington University while working full-time at Renton Municipal Airport. I would not be in my current position without resources like WAMA or mentors encouraging me to apply for an internship position."

Kennedy Vessey

Kennedy Vessey interned at Auburn airport in 2021. Kennedy reports that she has accepted employment at one of our Washington-state airports. She is not the first intern to land an airport job--there have been quite a few others.  It is encouraging to see how well this program works; giving real-world experience to young professionals, and creating a pathway to employment.
