 Friends of the Glenwood Springs Airport is a non-profit organization established in 2005 by local area pilots and flight enthusiasts. Each school year the Friends award up to two scholarships for up to $2,000 each to academically strong graduating seniors who plan to make the field of aviation a part of their daily lives. 

Motivated, well-rounded students who strive for excellence and have an interest in flying, or in the field of aviation, are encouraged to apply. Eligible students must be a graduating senior who are going to pursue a career in aviation, a pilot’s license, or a course of study through a four-year program or technical school geared toward a career in aviation.
