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.
While the 2020 competition was cancelled amidst coronavirus concerns, the council recognized a handful of student competitors through a "virtual" awards ceremony on June 24.
The following individuals were presented with $1,000 awards:
The scholarship is supported through the generous contributions of AMC participants and sponsors. For more information and to apply, visit www.aerospacecompetition.com/scholarship.
Applications for next year's award are due March 15, 2021.
