National Flight Academy Scholarship
Delta Air Lines has selected Junior Achievement of the Americas to receive scholarships for 10 students to attend the National Flight Academy (NFA) in Pensacola, FL for one week during Summer 2019!
The National Flight Academy is a premier STEM education institution that provides students in grades 7-12 (13 to 18 years old) with a fully-immersive, learning adventure of a lifetime! During the NFA’s 6-day overnight program, 7-12 grade students live aboard AMBITION, a state-of-the-art virtual aircraft carrier. They work together to plan humanitarian missions with ultramodern, advanced technology, learn to fly in 42 networked flight simulators, eat on a mess deck, sleep in staterooms and receive mission briefings in six fully electronic ready rooms. By working in a team squadron format, they are able to collaborate and complete missions using a variety of STEM-based concepts while facilitators and chiefs (program counselors) incorporate 21st Century Core Competency Skills like leadership, communication, and critical thinking.
Please note that students would need to pay for airplane tickets to Pensacola, Florida.
To participate on the selection, please ask your students to fill out the application here until March 25th.
