There are several aviation scholarships available in Houston and Los Angeles. The most notable one is the Houston Airport System’s Aviation Scholarship Program, administered by the City of Houston.

The program provides up to $1,500 per semester or quarter for tuition payment at recognized educational programs leading towards an aviation-related occupation.
The Los Angeles Times also offers an annual Aviation Scholarship which provides students with up to $4,000 per year for four years towards their college education at any accredited U.S school of higher learning that focuses on aeronautics/aviation engineering and related studies such as meteorology and systems analysis. This scholarship is open to any graduating high school senior from Los Angeles County who plans on majoring in aeronautical engineering or other related fields of study within this field while attending a college or university located inside the United States of America and its territories.
Finally, there are several national organizations offering specific scholarships for students pursuing a career in aviation including Women In Aviation International (WAI), Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association (AOPA), Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Flight Instructors Association (FIA) and National Air Transportation Association (NATA). These organizations offer both monetary awards as well as equipment grants or travel stipends depending on eligibility criteria set forth by each organization individually.
