In 2003, the Royal Aeronautical Society launched the Centennial Scholarship Fund 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.
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 and will continue to do so in 2013 and beyond.

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
The British Aviation Group Scholarships – for air transport, airport planning and infrastructure study
Since the awards began in 2003, over 125 awards have been made with a value of more than £450,000.00
We run one series of applications annually.
