The National Aircraft Finance Association (NAFA) has awarded scholarships to four US university and college students planning to work in corporate aviation finance, law or insurance.

Andrew Roybal, at the University of North Dakota; Christopher Sailer, at the Florida Institute of Technology; and Mary Elizabeth Smith and Devon Weinman, both at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University; receive 2011 NAFA Corporate Aviation Business Scholarship Awards.

“It is imperative that NAFA support and encourage the next generation of business aviation professionals,” said Bob Howe, NAFA President and president of Dorr Aviation Credit Corporation. “We are honored to award these scholarships to outstanding young men and women like Andrew, Christopher, Mary Elizabeth and Devon”.

NAFA says that students interested in the NAFA Scholarship program should apply through their schools’ Financial Aid office.  All completed applications must be submitted to NAFA by the university/college Financial Aid office and must be received by NAFA no later than April 1 each year.  

The association is dedicated to promoting the general welfare of individuals and organizations that provide aircraft financing to the business and general aviation marketplace; to improving the industry’s service to the public; and to working with government agencies to foster a greater understanding of member needs.

It organizes a well-attended conference in May each year as well as popular cocktail parties at NBAA and AOPA. Next year it is also planning at networking cocktail at EBACE.

Corporate Jet Investor is an associate member of NAFA.
