CIAM Scholarships

The Scholarship is a one-off payment and has to be administered by the National Airsport Control which, for the United Kingdom, is, of course, the BMFA. The Scholarship is intended to help with school, college or university tuition fees, educational books or other educational needs. Payment will be through the BMFA to the successful candidate's educational establishment.

The maximum age of any applicant is 21 years in the nomination year and only one candidate per country may be submitted to the CIAM.

Nominations from any young flier interested in being considered as the UK's candidate must be received by the BMFA office no later than 10th August in any year. All the nominations will be considered at the September Full Council Meeting where one nominee will be chosen as the most appropriate to be submitted to the CIAM.

A specially established CIAM Scholarship Selection Group of world-wide education experts will consider all the nominations submitted to CIAM and rank them in descending order of merit. This list will then be presented to the CIAM Bureau who shall recommend a single candidate to the following year's CIAM Plenary meeting for approval. Scholarships may only be awarded at the CIAM Plenary meeting after due process.
