The It's About Time Scholarship is overseen by The Abingdon Co. each year and awards a full registration to the International Women in Aviation Conference, round-trip airfare, and room and board during the conference to a woman 18 years old or older. Along with access to seminars and multiple networking opportunities, we will introduce the winner to key people in aviation who will share their experiences. Applicants are not required to be pilots or in the aviation industry. The goal is to invite someone to see all of the different avenues of aviation from engineering to aerobatics to maintenance and airlines.
The criteria are simple: The applicant chooses the format for their application. We have had stickers designed, essays written, videos shot, and one applicant even translated www.TheAbingdonCo.com into Spanish! The one who exhibits the most passion goes. Multiple ideas are encouraged.
What would you do that will prove to us that you are the one we should bring with us to the conference and introduce you to key figures in the aviation industry? Use your natural talents and skills to make your application stand out. You have a talent that makes you shine. What is that talent or skill that you possess that can be used by The Abingdon Co.? Prove it to us and we will support you by flying you out to the conference. Creativity and involvement in our company's social media are encouraged.
