Four students have been awarded foundation scholarships by AAR, a provider of aviation services to commercial and government operators, MROs, and OEMs.
AAR created its Foundation Scholarship to contribute to the academic studies of AAR employees’ children and the aviation industry.
Recipients must meet a cumulative 3.0 grade point average requirement and enroll in an aviation or aerospace related bachelor’s programme for the 2023-2024 academic year.
This year’s recipients are Mauricio Ceren Angulo, Julio Denis, Daniel Felipe Rocha Villegas, and Mason Tatone.
John M Holmes, chairman, president and chief executive of AAR, said: “The AAR Foundation Scholarship is one of the many ways AAR supports our employees and the aviation industry,” said. “Our employees are passionate about aviation, and it’s fantastic to see this passed down to their children.”
Tatone, who will study Aerospace Engineering at California State Polytechnic University from the next academic year, said: “I feel like I am destined to build aircraft.
“My interest in aviation began when I attended AAR’s Take Your Child to Work Day more than 10 years ago, so it’s special that I am now receiving a scholarship from AAR to study aviation in college.”
