Signature Flight Support, in coordination with NBAA Charities, has established the Eddie Queen Business Aviation Management Scholarship to benefit undergraduates pursuing careers in business aviation management.

Eddie QueenThe scholarship was created to honor the memory of Eddie Queen, a Signature Flight Support line service technician for 58 years. His dedication and commitment were an inspiration to all who benefitted from his service.

NBAA Charities and Signature Flight Support will annually award $2,500 to an undergraduate student (sophomore or higher) who is officially enrolled in an aviation management program at a University Aviation Association (UAA) member school. Applicants must show a passion for aviation and demonstrate superior customer service skills, as Eddie Queen did.

Scholarships will be awarded for the 2015–16 academic year, and checks will be made payable to the school. Awards will be made to U.S. citizens or permanent residents without regard to sex, race, religion or national origin. Scholarship recipients must use the funds by Oct. 31, 2016, or risk forfeit of the award.

A completed application package, which includes application form, one essay, one transcript, one resume and two letters of recommendation, must be received by NBAA Charities no later than July 31, 2015, to be considered for the scholarship. See application form for details.

For all NBAA Charities 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 info@nbaa.org.
