FedEx and Embry-Riddle: Ensuring Excellence in Aviation Maintenance

ERAU students working on a jet engine

The aviation industry is facing a widely anticipated shortage of aircraft maintenance technicians (AMTs). To contend with the potentially severe effects on the airline industry, FedEx is supporting Embry-Riddle students in their pursuit of Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certifications, through the Purple Runway Aviation Scholarship.

The scholarship aligns with an important need to prepare future generations of AMTs and instructors for the workforce. An important component of this effort is ensuring that the aviation industry has a talented and diverse workforce that reflects Embry-Riddle's and FedEx's worldwide reach.

This year's FedEx scholarship recipients are listed below.
