Monte Mitchell Memorial Scholarship

Apply for the Monte Mitchell Memorial Scholarship by Feb. 1 and you could be selected to receive a full AEA Convention registration, including travel and hotel expenses, to the 2014 AEA International Convention & Trade Show in Nashville, Tenn., March 12-15.

This scholarship will be awarded to an employee of an AEA member repair station who has never attended the AEA Convention.

Awarded by the AEA Educational Foundation, the Monte Mitchell Scholarship, honors Mitchell's service of more than 40 years to the general aviation industry. Mitchell first served as the AEA executive director and later as president of the association from 1977 to 1996.

With Mitchell's leadership, the AEA Educational Foundation was created in 1990. Its mission is to enhance, promote and secure the future of aviation and the AEA by furthering the education of students, technicians, members of the AEA and others as determined by aviation industry needs.

Throughout his tenure with the AEA, Mitchell always shared the belief that once an AEA member attended a convention, they became a member for life because of the value they received in education and networking at AEA events.
