Jazz Scholarships

We are pleased to announce two new annual national scholarship opportunities from our Jazz Aviation partnership for successful graduates of the ACLC Power Flight program. Air Cadets who are interested in pursuing a career as a commercial pilot can now apply for one of two new education scholarships.

The two scholarships that will be awarded for the first time in 2017 are:

  1. The Jazz Aviation Pathway Award for Professionalism. Awarded to a full-time student accepted and enrolled in a Jazz APP-affiliated aviation program for outstanding contributions to safety, leadership and professionalism. The Award consists of a $3000 scholarship to one of the Jazz App programs.
  2. The Jazz Aviation Pathway Award for Professionalism and Diversity. Awarded to a full-time student accepted and enrolled in a Jazz APP-affiliated aviation program who has self-identified as Aboriginal, a person with a disability, a visible minority, or female; for outstanding contributions to safety, leadership and professionalism. The Award consists of a $3000 scholarship to one of the Jazz APP programs.

All Cadets who have graduated from the Power program and meet the eligibility requirements can apply for the first award. Any Cadet who has graduated from the Power program and identifies themselves in one of the categories can apply for the second program. The committee will review all applications and may consider Cadets applying to the second award as candidates for the first award if warranted.

Finalists who are being considered for each of the awards will undergo an interview with representatives from Jazz.
