Loretta Scott, A.A.E. Accreditation/Certification Academy Scholarship Program

Two of the top reasons airport professionals join AAAE are for the outstanding professional development and networking opportunities.  However, we recognize that participation in events such as the Loretta Scott, A.A.E. Accreditation/Certification Academy can be a cost-prohibitive investment for airport or personal budgets.  AAAE created the Loretta Scott, A.A.E.
