AvScholars.com was created by author and self-publisher Captain
Sedgwick Hines, after its conception in 1999 as a spin off of
the second edition of the self-published book Aviation Scholarships.
In order to provide students and parents with up-to-date
and accurate information, Mr. Hines decided to use technology
(via The Internet) to filter and distribute this information
in a timely fashion. The result was the creation of AvScholars.com.
AvScholars.com is our Internet initiative to help students and
families plan for all aspects of a higher education, as they
pursue a career within the aviation/aerospace industry. The
objective of our web site is to guide students and families
through the entire process of furthering their education and
career, entirely online at one location. Much of the web
site is still under construction, and we are continually gathering
information to include here. Access to AvScholars.com is Free.
AvScholars.com will provide:
information on careers in aviation
on how to prepare and plan for college and flight training
information on financial aid to pay for school and/or
information on internships, cooperative education programs,
and other employment related issues
AvScholars.com is more than just a web site. It is a communication
platform for students, parents, and educators to exchange information,
ideas, and tips.
In March 2000, AvScholars.com was launched to help students
and families plan and pay for school and flight training.
Since the launch of AvScholars.com, the web site has received:
2.9 million visitors as of March 2003
(an average of 150,000 visitors/month), and
of emails from students and parents requesting additional
information and guidance.
We expect to continue this growth trend through aggressive marketing,
publicity, and positive word-of-month. Statistics and
letters from our web site’s visitors is evidence that
there is a demand for the free services provided on AvScholars.com.
