Centennial Scholarships

The Royal Aeronautical Society launched the Centennial Scholarship Fund in 2003 in celebration of one hundred years of flight and to look forward to the next generation of aerospace pioneers and experts in the 21st Century.

Centennial Scholarships

Thanks to the generous support of the sponsors of the Fund, representing all areas of membership of the RAeS – from our Corporate Partners large and small, to individual members – the Fund has gone from strength to strength and we have been able to provide support to a number of outstanding students and team initiatives.

Awards include support towards:

* Final year MEng students
* Postgraduate tuition fees to enable young people to undertake Master’s programmes such as Air Transport Management and Aerospace Vehicle Design
* Completion of aerospace-related post-doctorate research projects
* National programmes to encourage young people’s interest in the aviation industry and aerospace engineering.

These include several named awards:

* The Robert Blackburn Award – for aerospace engineering study
* The Alan Snudden Award – for aircraft engineering and safety related study
* The GP Olley Award – for aerospace medicine study and research
