Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University students were recently honored with scholarships from two national organizations.
The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), through NBAA Charities, awarded scholarships to three Embry-Riddle students during its convention in Orlando this week.
Two students from the Daytona Beach Campus, Estelle E. Jules, who is majoring in Air Traffic Management, and Jonathan Conod, who is majoring in Aviation Maintenance Science, were part of five who received the University Aviation Association (UAA) Janice K. Barden Aviation Scholarship.
The scholarship is named for the late founder of Aviation Personnel International, who was active in the aviation community for decades and received NBAA’s John P. “Jack” Doswell Award for her lifelong achievement in support of business aviation.
Also at the NBAA convention, Christen Bailey, who is majoring in Aviation Business Administration, was one of five who received the Lawrence Ginocchio Aviation Scholarship for demonstrating honesty, integrity and selflessness.
The scholarship was created in 2001 by NBAA Charities, along with the family and friends of the late Lawrence Ginocchio, to honor his outstanding personal contribution to business aviation.
The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Wings Over Houston Airshow also recently honored Embry-Riddle students who are pursuing careers in aviation-related fields with scholarships.
Addison Hemphill, who is majoring in Aeronautics at Embry-Riddle’s Worldwide Campus, and Samuel Rice, who is majoring in Aerospace Engineering at Embry-Riddle’s Prescott Campus, received two of three scholarships awarded.
The CAF Wings Over Houston Airshow Scholarship Program provides assistance to students who have completed two years of study in aviation or a related field and who demonstrate academic potential, leadership and extracurricular involvement.
