The AMAC Foundation works alongside AMAC and is dedicated to advancing minorities and women pursuing careers in the aviation industry. The Foundation develops educational programs, scholarship and mentorship opportunities, and shares information to support aviation and airport industry professionals, from college students beginning their careers to seasoned professionals.
Since its establishment in 1997, the AMAC Foundation has awarded more than $300,000 in scholarships for students around the country, supporting students pursuing a broad range of careers in airports, airlines, the federal government, and private sector. To support our efforts furthering minorities and women as aviation professionals, make a tax-deductible donation or consider a corporate sponsorship.
Communities, economies, and industries are strengthened when there is a diversity of perspectives in business operations. We envision an airport and aviation industry that is vibrant and inclusive of minority and women students, employees, and business owners.
The AMAC Foundation creates a community that furthers the presence of minority and women professionals in the aviation industry, from high school through their professional lives by advocating for and engaging with professionals at all career levels.
The Foundation accomplishes its mission by
- offering scholarships to support university students pursuing careers in the aviation industry;
- developing programs and events to maximize opportunities for aviation professionals and students to connect and network;
- conducting educational forums, seminars, and research; and
- educating the general public on air transportation, airports, airport operations and facilities management.
