AJAP Aviation Scholarship Fund.

AJAP is working hard to organize this fundraiser, in hopes to raise at least $125,000 to offer five aviation scholarships for our youth. We are hoping to award scholarships for at least five young Jewsih adults between the ages of 16 and 25, who are passionate about aviation and dream of a piloting career, whose family could not otherwise afford to pay for their training. This will give them a jump start on their path to a career.

To qualify for the scholarships, each applicant will need to submit a video showing their passion for aviation and how being awarded a scholarship will change and better their life. These videos will then be displayed online for all of our supporters to vote for their favorites. We will then narrow down the videos according to the vote of the public, to choose the winners of the scholarships. All applicants will also be verified to ensure they financially need this scholarship.

At a yet to be determined date, we will hold an event to award the winning applicants. This event will be open to the public and all of our supporters. The presentation of the scholarships will also be recorded and posted online with a small clip of each winner for our supporters who could not attend. And finally, we will keep everyone updated with the progress of the students training and mark their major milestones through a blog and social media. We want all the supporters of this fundraiser to have to opportunity to see where the contributions are going, and the lives they are helping.

Together we can help make a huge difference in a few young people’s lives. The number of scholarships awarded will be determined by the amount of support received.
