APPLICATION PACKAGE CHECKLIST

Part of succeeding in the professional helicopter industry is carefully reading and following instructions. The scholarship committee will be reviewing numerous applications, so it is in your best interest to provide the information as requested.

The application forms must be filled out COMPLETELY. If you are unable to email the required files and must mail the application, it must be TYPED, and all the questions on the forms must be answered. Incomplete application packages will be rejected, and the application fee will not be refunded.

Note: Do not include a resume or anything else not specifically requested in the application. We receive many applications that have extraneous information that cannot be used in the evaluation process. Materials such as tapes, books, flyers, etc. are not sent to evaluators due to time limitations and cost to reproduce and mail.
