NBAA’s S&D Committee offers scholarships through two separate but related programs that specifically promote professional and career development for business aviation schedulers and dispatchers.

Through the S&D Scholarship Program, the committee offers cash grants, which can be used for a variety of professional development initiatives. Since 1997, more than $700,000 has been awarded through this program. A separate S&D Training Scholarship Program, launched in 2004, offers opportunities for scholarship recipients to gain access to hands-on teaching initiatives.
