Vanier Family Aviation Maintenance Scholarship

K-State Salina has created a scholarship that will provide affordable, world-class education and help fill the industry's need for qualified aviation maintenance professionals through the Vanier Family Aviation Maintenance Scholarship. This scholarship helps fulfill our land-grant mission by offering essential financial support to talented, full-time students pursuing an aviation maintenance degree. If a full-time undergraduate student’s aid/scholarship package does not cover the full costs of tuition, fees, room, and board, the student will automatically receive the Vanier Scholarship worth up to an additional $7,500 per year. The scholarship is renewable for an additional year ($15,000 maximum scholarship value).

Why an Aviation Maintenance Degree?

Prepare for a high-paying career in aviation maintenance by earning an associate degree that prepares students to take the Federal Aviation Administration's Airframe and Powerplant certification with the FAA. The demand for competent and qualified individuals is increasing as the number of jobs in the industry grows.
