MAA Offers Airports Grants for Internships
The Mississippi Airports Association is now offering member airports financial assistance to help develop and manage an internship program for students interested in pursuing careers in airport management. MAA offers a matching grant for 50% of the eligible costs of an internship program up to a maximum of $2,500.
To be eligible, a student must be at least a junior in college, be enrolled in an accredited aviation management program and have at least a 3.0 GPA. Interns selected by the host airport must be either current, full-time students at Delta State University or be Mississippi residents enrolled as full-time students at four-year colleges or universities in the geographic area defined by the Southern Region of the FAA.
Information on the grant program can be found at the MAA webpage, www.msairportsassociation.com. The deadline for this year’s application is April 30th.
