The newly formed Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Foundation is seeking Canada’s next leaders and explorers in science and space and is offering scholarships to support the educational efforts of these individuals.
Twenty scholarships worth $1,000 each are available to any Canadian youth under age 25 who are either entering or studying in a post-secondary institution or flight school. The money is designed to help students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) studies or flight training potentially pursue careers in aviation or the aerospace industry.
“We have thousands of brilliant young people in our country who have big dreams. These scholarships are to inspire our students and to meet the rapidly growing demand for skilled people in the private and defence sectors and to be leaders in Canada and the world,” said (retd) Lt.-Gen. Michael Hood, CMM CD, former commander of the RCAF.
