Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport (YQM) introduced the Rob Robichaud Vantage Airport Group Scholarship in Aviation. The new scholarship offers $9,000 to an international student to attend Mount Allison University and enter the Bachelor of Science (Aviation) program — a unique undergraduate program that pairs a degree with pilot training — offered by the university in partnership with Moncton Flight College.
The Rob Robichaud Vantage Airport Group Scholarship in Aviation will be awarded for the first time in 2018-2019 and will be available to a full-time international student in, or entering, the Bachelor of Science (Aviation) degree program, with preference to students from The Bahamas, Jamaica, and the Caribbean. The scholarship will be awarded to one student per year at a value of $9,000, unless there are two equally ideal and qualified students, in which case two scholarships will be awarded at a value of $4,500 each.
Established in 2008, Mount Allison’s Aviation program is offered in partnership with the Moncton Flight College. The Bachelor of Science degree program is one of only a few in Canada that allows students to earn an undergraduate degree that incorporates flight and ground school training. Students focus on subjects relevant to aviation such as geography, mathematics, and physics at Mount Allison; complete ground school training at the Moncton Flight College; and complete more than 200 hours of flight training. Graduates have a high level of employment immediately following their degree (mta.ca/aviation).
