USABAA promotes, supports and encourages students in pursuit of educational and professional goals in the field of aviation. Our goals are:
- Develop scholarships and student aid programs that are sufficiently
varied to provide opportunities as aviators, engineers, navigators, technicians and other aviation specialties.
- Encourage young people to enter the military or pursue employment fields in commercial aviation
- Pursue and complete educational opportunities in aviation related fields
The organization has provided several scholarships to individuals attending college, completing their education and entering into the military. Our most recent recipient for 2016 is currently completing her education at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University to become an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP).
