The Utah Business Aviation Association was formed in 2007 to promote general aviation advocacy, safety and education throughout Utah. A major focus of UBAA’s goals is creating awareness and understanding about the positive benefits of business aviation within our state and furthering the education of our future industry leaders. Our desire is to establish a successful scholarship and mentoring program designed to ensure that our industry has a plan to support the development of future aviation managers, dispatchers, mechanics and pilots. As UBAA’s membership and local interest grows, it is our hope that the scholarship program will grow as well.
UBAA and our generous sponsors invite interested applicants currently enrolled in the last two years of an established aviation program within a college or university in Utah with a GPA of 3.0 or better to apply. Scholarships may be applied toward tuition at the college or university or at a flight school that is approved by the scholarship board.
