Welcome to the 2019 American Airlines Federal Credit Union Scholarship application.

Eleven students will be selected to receive a $5,000 scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year. Although most of the application can be completed online, official transcripts must be mailed in separately. Once you create a scholarship application account, you will be able to log in and save your work until you hit the submit button.

Completed applications will be reviewed by a judging committee. The committee will review and select applicants based on such criteria as: Essays or video, academic achievement, letters of recommendation, leadership and extracurricular activities.  Extracurricular activities would include school and community involvement, volunteer work and work experience.
