      Hi We offer a scholarship of up to £2500 annually for a person to use to attend an airworthiness course or event. Any person who works for or who is a member of an IFA Corporate or Institutional member can be nominated for the scholarship. Sadly the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to not offer a scholarship for 2020 but we hope to be able to offer the opportunity again in 2021.
