Once you receive your flight scholarships award notification letter and forms packet from The Association, follow these steps.
Step-by-Step Scholarship Procedures
Failure to comply with these requirements will make you ineligible for future grants and scholarships.
The information you provide on the Contact Information Verification Form will be used to verify the contact information for both you (the scholarship recipient) and a second party that will ensure proper use of the funds. This must be your Squadron Commander, Group Commander, Wing Commander, or Activity Director. You must also provide information on your flight instructor and FBO. Providing this information will authorize your account for funding.
This is a reimbursement scholarship. Payment will be made to you (or to an individual you identify) after you submit receipts for training and/or materials. No monies will be paid in advance. It is important for you to realize that you have one calendar year from the date of this letter to use your funds. Any money left over must be returned to The Association and will revert to our scholarship fund for future awardees.
As a condition of your application, you agreed to provide The Association with documentation of appropriate use of scholarship funds, such as receipts, photos, completion certificates, or narratives of use. You must also submit an End-of-Activity report, suitable for posting on our website and distributing to our benefactors, which details your flight training experience.
Sample update and End-of-Activity reports may be found on the Scholarship FAQ page at spaatz.org.
If you submit any photographs with your report, you must also include the Consent, License, and Release Form included in your form packet. Contact us if you have any questions regarding photographic consent.
All receipts and the End-of-Activity report must be received within 90 days of you earning your certificate or the end of the scholarship award period (12 months from award date).
IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT put personally identifiable information (PII) in the End-of-Activity report (CAPSNs, birthdays, addresses, etc. — names and grades are ok). These reports will be shared with our Donors via The Spaatz Association website.
