We are so excited to announce round one of this year’s scholarships. As the prior years have taught us – we have some amazingly talented individuals who are seeking our assistance, guidance and mentorship on their journey into and through the aviation certification process.
All of us at Stripes to Bars continue to be astounded at the quality of applicants for our annual scholarships, and this year has been no exception. We’re proud to announce that we have awarded 5 scholarships for a grand total of $11,500 in Round 1. Yes – that means there is a Round 2 coming later this month.
As our organization continues to grow, so do the scholarships. We are excited to be able to come alongside our veterans who are pursuing aviation in both career and non-career paths.
So, without further adieu…here are the 5 recipients for Round 1 of the 2020 Stripes to Bars Scholarships:
- Ryan Cooney
- Matthew Novellino
- Andres Piedra
- Maryam Khazraee
- Samantha Albrecht.
Stay tuned to find out more as we’ll be interviewing them each individually so you can get to know the men and women who are becoming a part of the Stripes to Bars family.
