NBAA Charities and the family and friends of Lawrence Ginocchio annually award $4,500 to each of five undergraduate students enrolled at NBAA/University Aviation Association (UAA) member institutions.

The Lawrence Ginocchio Aviation Scholarship was created in 2001 by NBAA Charities and the family and friends of the late Lawrence “Larry” Ginocchio to honor his outstanding personal contribution to the business aviation community. Named for a remarkable man whose strength of character inspired a high standard of caring in the aviation community, this scholarship recognizes those individuals who have demonstrated honesty, integrity and selflessness in their dealings with others. These individuals should possess a passion for aviation, as Larry Ginocchio did, and utilize their interest or involvement in business aviation to enhance the lives of others.

Awards will be made to U.S. citizens without regard to sex, race, religion or national origin. Scholarships will be awarded in the fall of 2016 and checks will be made payable to the school. Scholarship recipients must use the funds by Dec. 31, 2017, or risk forfeit of the award.

Applicants must be full-time undergraduate students (sophomore or higher) enrolled for the academic year in an aviation-related two-year or four-year degree program at an NBAA/UAA-member institution with a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

A completed and signed application form must be accompanied by an essay, resume, official transcript and two letters of recommendation. The completed application must be received by NBAA no later than August 1, 2016, to be considered for the scholarship. See application for full details.

For all NBAA scholarships, applicants are limited to receiving one award per person, per year. Direct all questions about this application to NBAA's Tyler Austin at (202) 783-9267 or scholarships@nbaa.org.
