The Bill McShane Memorial Aviation Scholarship - APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE 2024 FALL SEMESTER

Application Deadline - June 28, 2024

The Bill McShane Scholarship was established in the memory of NYAMA past president and longtime Board member William J. McShane of Babylon, NY. Bill was a respected statewide aviation leader, and he was instrumental in helping bring the Bethpage Air Show to Jones Beach and served as the Vice President of Business Development & Special Projects for Sheltair Aviation. 

The Bill McShane Scholarship is presented to individuals interested in aviation, offering a scholarship of $2,000 to two students each year. William “Bill” McShane, who served on the NYAMA Board from 2000 through 2018, also served on NYAMA’s Executive Board from 2006-2010, including a term as president in 2009, and again as treasurer in 2013. Bill’s deep and abiding passion for the aviation industry was a gift that benefitted NYAMA’s membership throughout his tenure on the Board, and he dedicated countless hours of service to advancing the organization’s mission by deploying an intricate knowledge of the Empire State’s aviation businesses.

Bill’s legacy continues to reward New York’s aviation community through this scholarship. Please send questions and completed scholarship applications to [email protected]. The deadline for the Fall 2024 semester scholarship award is June 28, 2024.
