The annual Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship deadline of January 1st is fast approaching. Hopefully, interested members have already reached out to their Chairwoman about applying. Waiting until the last minute reduces the amount of time she has to help proof apps and/or make suggestions to improve it.

Both Applicants and AE Chairs should watch the AEMSF Tips video online at the webinars tab –
