IMG_4091

The Thunderbird Field II Veterans Memorial, Inc. (Tbird2) 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 their funds paid directly to the Tbird2 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. Tbird2 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 Tbird2 Scholarship Program.

Tbird2 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 Tbird2 representative(s) will present the student with a plaque to commemorate the scholarship award and will have a photo taken of the presentation with a national press release to follow.

Tbird2 has identified the following institutions that have aviation programs and has obtained formal approval from each institution for the Tbird2 Aviation Scholarship Program.

  • Arizona State University
  • Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
  • Cochise College
  • Yavapai College
  • Chandler-Gilbert Community College
  • Pima Community College

Tbird2 is constantly adding institutions to its approved list. Check with your particular institution or technical school. If your institution/school has an interest is supporting Tbird2’s scholarship program, please have the school representative complete the contact form under the Contact Us tab on this website.
