)-- GlobalAir.com is pleased to announce the winners of the Globalair.com "Calvin L. Carrithers" Aviation Scholarship: Austin Fields, Nicole Lund, Savanna Paulsen, and Cameron Sansone.
After a successful launch of the inaugural Calvin L. Carrithers Aviation Scholarship program in 2014, students from across the country have benefited. In 2019, students from the University of Nebraska Omaha, Purdue University, Southern Utah University, and Arizona State University were selected as recipients.
Jeff Carrithers, president, and CEO of GlobalAir.com explains, "We are pleased with the results of the scholarship program this year. It is very clear that our industry is in need of aviation professionals and we are excited to be able to provide these students with the necessary means to further their educations."
Carrithers continues, "We want to be able to give support to college students studying aviation, as well as provide them a way to share their experiences with peers in the industry through weekly blog posting. I believe it is extremely important for them to have a way to introduce themselves to the industry and begin networking now as they begin their careers in such a fast-paced field."
The scholarship committee considered multiple attributes of the candidates during the deliberation process, including writing capabilities, enthusiasm for aviation, and their motivation to pursue further education. The four students chosen showcased to the scholarship committee a true passion for aviation.
