The Greater Fort Wayne Aviation Museum and the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority are looking for applicants for the 2020 Jim Kelley Memorial Scholarship and Fort Wayne International Aviation Scholarship.
In 2006, the scholarship was created in memory of Jim Kelley, a local entrepreneur and leader of aviation in Northeast Indiana. The board of the Greater Fort Wayne Aviation Museum, co-founded by Jim Kelley, will award a $1,500.00 scholarship. In addition to the Jim Kelley Memorial Scholarship, Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority will present two aviation scholarships both in the amount of $1,500.00.

• Students must be accepted to an accredited public or private institution of post-secondary education, whether it be a technical school or a four-year college or university.
