National Flight Academy Scholarships for Dependents of Military/Retired Military

Delta Air Lines, the official airline of the National Flight Academy, is providing tuition scholarships to 23 students of military dependents to attend a six-day, five-night immersive program at the National Flight Academy! The National Flight Academy is a premier Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (or STEM) education institution that provides students in grades 7-12 with a fully-immersive, learning adventure of a lifetime! During the NFA’s 6-day overnight program, rising 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 can collaborate and complete missions using a variety of STEM-based concepts while facilitators and chiefs (program counselors) incorporate 21st Century Core Competency Skills to include leadership, communication and critical thinking.

Tuition scholarships are valued at $1,250 each. Delta does NOT cover travel to and from the National Flight Academy in Pensacola, FL. However, shuttle service is provided from Pensacola International Airport to the NFA for those students traveling by air.
