Since 1990, FAC’s Education Foundation has provided scholarships for full-time undergraduate and graduate students who are attending one of the Council’s Member Educational Institutions and pursuing degrees in an aviation field. The Foundation also provides internships to member-airports as an incentive to give students work experience along with their education. It gives these airports an opportunity to train the next generation of aviation professionals as well as allow airport leadership to assess the intern’s potential as a permanent employee. Student Chapters of the Florida Airports Council strengthen the bond between the students, educational institutions, and Florida’s airport industry.
The Mission of the Education Foundation is to:
(1) Further the professionalism of FAC members so they may better perform their duties,
(2) Financially and professionally assist students pursuing careers in aviation,
(3) Encourage the advancement of the aviation profession, and
(4) Support aviation education, research and training.
