Offered by a variety of external organizations at local, state and national levels; recipients are exclusively selected by participating organizations. Because the College of Aviation encourages organizations to develop an ongoing relationship with the College in which scholarships are consistently made to WMU students, students receiving scholarships from external organizations are encouraged to notify the College about their scholarship so that a collaboration between the organizations may be pursued.
Guidance for Scholarship Applicants In applying for any scholarship, it is important to follow the directions carefully. Some scholarship applications may ask for a resume. Resumes will be evaluated based on the stated objective, educational background, work experience/extracurricular activities/volunteer work, leadership roles held and the overall quality and appearance of the resume. Some scholarship applications may ask for an essay on a specific topic. Essays will be evaluated based on the quality of the introduction (a brief abstract), development of the topic (amount, depth and specificity of supporting details), conclusion (summarizes the material and does not introduce new material), sentence structure (grammar), mechanical conventions (spelling, capitalization and punctuation) and overall quality and appearance.
