The Northrop Rice Foundation annually offers financial assistance scholarships to active or retired military applicants seeking A&P certification based on the applicant’s military training and experience, and satisfactory scores on oral and practical FAA tests. These scholarships cover the cost of reference text books, study guides, publications, and handbooks needed to study for the FAA Airframe and/or Powerplant written tests.
