The Thunderbird Field II Veterans Memorial, Inc. (TB2) Aviation Scholarship Program is designed to provide scholarships for Arizona students attending Arizona colleges, universities and technical schools. These scholarships are financial awards that are not based on financial need.
Each scholarship recipient will receive up to $2,500 paid directly to the TB2 approved aviation specialty school, community college or public or private university in the recipient’s name. Internet training programs are not approved at this time. TB2 has the right to make changes at any time or delete any school from its approved list. All interested applicants must apply directly through the technical/trade school or college and be accepted for an aviation-related certificate, associate’s, bachelor’s or master’s degree. The requirements will differ for each educational institution and type of program. Any applicant who is serving or has served in the Armed Forces, or has a parent who is serving or is a veteran, will receive an additional preference point to their application, subject to meeting the required qualifications posted by each school’s TB2 $2,000 Scholarship Program.
TB2 will present the award to the student at a place and time to be determined and have the student attend along with his/her parents or spouse. During this event, a TB2 representative(s) will present the student with a plaque to commemorate the scholarship award and will have a photo taken of the presentation.
