ARSA Continues Holiday Tradition with Aviation Maintenance Scholarship

ALEXANDRIA, VA, December 21, 2011 – In lieu of holiday cards and gifts to members, the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) donated $1,000 to the Northrop Rice Foundation (NRF) for an aviation maintenance scholarship. The award will go to a student attending a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certificated Part 147 Aviation Technician School, with the winner selected by NRF’s Board of Directors.

“Due to the industry’s need for skilled technical workers, ARSA continued its tradition of making a contribution to a deserving student. In the spirit of true holiday cheer, the Association doubled down on this worthwhile cause and increased its donation over last year’s $500,” said ARSA Executive Director Sarah MacLeod.

The development of a qualified technical workforce has long been one of ARSA’s top priorities as its members routinely list a shortage of skilled labor among the industry’s biggest challenges.

“This gift will benefit a deserving student and aid the aviation community in recruiting a highly trained technical workforce,” MacLeod said.

To be eligible for the award, students must be attending a Part 147 aviation technical school and submit all the materials listed on the general application by January 31, 2012.

“We are grateful for ARSA’s continued efforts to promote excellence in aviation maintenance technical education through this award,” said NRF President Jim Lukins “This Association’s willingness to double their commitment this year truly symbolizes ARSA’s long record of supporting repair stations and commitment to developing a skilled, safety conscious workforce.”
