Every year, the American Airlines Education Foundation is proud to care for our team members by awarding $2,500 scholarships to their children. First-generation college students can receive an additional one-time award of $1,000. The foundation selects scholarship recipients based on outstanding academic achievement, community service, leadership and financial need. Scholarships fund full-time, undergraduate study at any accredited college, university or vocational program worldwide.
We consider students for scholarships in separate categories depending on country of residence. An independent selection committee evaluates the applications and selects recipients by: academic achievement (grade point average, class rank and academic awards/honors); demonstration of community service; and activities (participation in school and non-school activities; leadership roles on athletic teams or in other activities; and employment history). Applicants who want to demonstrate financial need must also submit a FAFSA.
