ATCA's Scholarship Fund relies on donations to fund our four aviation scholarships. The ATCA Scholarship program has been around since 1983 when it recognized one student with a small scholarship award. It has grown exponentially since then, supporting 8-12 students each year, with $75,000 in scholarships awarded annually. As of 2022, ATCA has given away nearly $1.4 million dollars to deserving students.
“Receiving an ATCA scholarship helped me set my career in motion. It allowed me to come to the annual conference, network, and make lifelong connections as well as take part of the financial stress off of myself in college. I am now an air traffic controller at Potomac TRACON in Virginia and the President of the Capital Region Chapter of Women In Aviation, and happy to have those connections I made with ATCA years ago!” -Natelie Chappell (Scholarship Recipient)
