The Aerospace Maintenance Competition showcases the talent required of aviation maintenance technicians to maintain aircraft and spacecraft in safe, airworthy condition. To further support of our future mechanics, AMC is proud to provide scholarships in recognition of Phoebe Jane Fairgrave Omlie, the first female to receive an FAA aircraft mechanic’s license in 1927. Phoebe helped show the world that women were just as capable as men in repairing and maintaining aircraft.
The award recipients are as follows:
The scholarship is supported through the generous contributions of AMC participants and sponsors. During the 2022 competition, Snap-on donated 500 screwdrivers that were originally meant for the cancelled 2020 event. Those screwdrivers were given out in exchange for donations to the scholarship fund where over $11k was raised. For more information and to apply, visit www.aerospacecompetition.com/scholarship.
Applications for next year's award will open in January 2023.
