Avfuel Awards Annual AVTRIP Scholarship

ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN/ AVFUEL INDUSTRY NEWS/ AVTRIP, the refueling incentive awards program for pilots, has chosen the latest recipient of its annual AVTRIP Scholarship. The winner of the 2007 Award, Timothy Ritter, lives in Toledo, Ohio, and was thrilled to learn of his award. In addition to the $2000.00 that will be applied to furthering his aviation education, Ritter received 50,000 Bonus AVTRIP Points.

Ritters application for the Avfuel AVTRIP Scholarship caught the eye of Avfuel with its enthusiasm and humility. Ritter believes in sharing the benefits of his pilot experience and education to other potential pilots, and acts as a mentor whenever he can. It is Avfuels passion to support the growth of the general and commercial aviation industries by encouraging dedicated pilots like Ritter to achieve success and constant advancement.

With a shrinking aviation population and fleet due to increased costs of taxes, liability, user fees and security, it is important to grow the ranks of general aviation pilots, says Ritter. I like to encourage people to learn how to fly. Indeed, Ritter developed what would turn out to be a life-long fascination with learning to fly at a very young age.

Arkansas announces scholarship in Hatfield’s honor

Arkansas announced a new scholarship Wednesday in honor of former coach Ken Hatfield.

The endowed scholarship bearing Hatfields name was established by Patrick Cameron, a former deep snapper for the Razorbacks. Cameron walked on at Arkansas, then earned the last scholarship Hatfield gave out during his tenure there. Hatfield went 55-17-1 with the Razorbacks from 1984-89.

For me to do this is about honoring coach Hatfield and continuing the tradition of pride and heart in Razorbacks football, Cameron said. Coach Hatfield gave me a tremendous opportunity.

Indiana relents on college aid program

Indiana relents on college aid program

A state scholarship program that has helped thousands would be open to children whose parents are not U.S. citizens or legal residents, under a proposed legal settlement.

The ACLU of Indiana, which filed a class-action lawsuit last March, is trying to get the word out to high schools and colleges where young people might have decided to skip the 21st Century Scholars program because they were told their parents immigration status disqualified them.

The scholarship program, established in 1990 by then-Gov. Evan Bayh, helps students who are U.S. citizens and have graduated from an Indiana high school pay for four years of tuition in a public college or university.

Its intended to help low- to moderate-income families, reduce the number of high-school dropouts and increase the number of students going to college. The amount of the scholarship varies.

Nigeria: FG Merges Scholarship Board With ETF

Out-going Minister of Education, Mrs Obiageli Ezekwesili, has announced the merger of the Federal Scholarship Board (FSB) with the Education Trust Fund (ETF).

Speaking on the occasion, Ezekwesili said the merger would form an integrated Education Finance Agency of the ministry. She said the scholarship division of the ministry was charged with the responsibility of rewarding, promoting and encouraging academic excellence in the nations educational system, but failed to achieve the desired results.

Represented by the Minister of State for Education, Dr Adewunmi Abitoye, Ezekwesili said the board was also established to develop the human capital for the nations development. She pointed out that the services of the board were not felt or enjoyed by deserving Nigerians because the sector was bedevilled by inefficiency, lack of clarity in policy actualisation and stability in funding.

Heineken lands college softball scholarship

Bonnie Heineken used to throw strikes across the home plate at the Interior Girls Softball Association Fields.

The 2007 North Pole High School graduate used the same home plate on Wednesday night to sign an NCAA Division I National Letter of Intent with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

Its really exciting, Heineken said after signing the letter in a ceremony during a break from practice with the Alaska Northstars Under-18 team. At first, I didnt realize that signing a letter of intent was that big, but I guess it is.
