Incoming and current students should make themselves aware of undergraduate scholarship opportunities.  Information regarding scholarship application processes, dates, etc. is available on the university scholarship page. A list of public scholarships for aviation students is available through ALPA’s Cleared to Dream website.  Auburn University is a member of the University Aviation Association (UAA), as well as the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), which both offer assistance in connecting students with scholarship opportunities. 

Veterans' Benefits

As a land grant university, Auburn University has always had a military affiliation. Auburn’s flight education program was initially established to train civilian pilots for service in the Army Air Corps during World War II. We’re proud to be approved by the Veterans Administration under the Post-9/11 GI Bill for both academic tuition and flight training fees and the Veterans Resource Center is a great asset for veterans transitioning from military to civilian life on a college campus.
