The It’s About Time Scholarship is overseen by The Abingdon Co. and awards a full registration to the Women in Aviation Conference, roundtrip airfare, and room and board during the conference to a woman 18 years old and older. Along with access to seminars and multiple networking opportunities, we will introduce the winner to key people in aviation who share their experiences. Applicants are not required to be pilots or in the aviation industry. The goal is to invite someone to see all of the different avenues of aviation from engineering to aerobatics to maintenance and airlines.
The criteria are simple: Tell or show why you deserve to go. The applicant chooses the format for their application. We have had stickers designed, essays written, videos shot, and someone translated www.TheAbingdonCo.com into Spanish! The one who exhibits the most passion goes. Multiple ideas are encouraged.
What would you do that will prove to us that you are the one we should bring with us? Use your natural talents and skills to make your application stand out. You have a talent that makes you shine. What is that talent or skill that you possess that can be used by The Abingdon Co.? Prove to us and we will support you by flying you out to the WAI conference. Creativity and involvement in our company’s social media are encouraged.
