PHILIP H. JONES

NAVAL AVIATION SCHOLARSHIP

Academic Year 2020 – 2021

  

The Philip H. Jones Family and the Association of Naval Aviation are very pleased to sponsor the annual Philip H. Jones Naval Aviation Scholarship which honors the service and sacrifice of LCDR Philip H. Jones, USN (Ret), who started his Naval Aviation career as an Aviation Pilot during WWII.

The Scholarship principally provides scholarship opportunities for the sons and daughters of Naval Aviators and Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Aircrewmen who died of any cause while on active duty serving in the United States Navy, Marine Corps or Coast Guard. Naval Aviators are Navy, Marine Corps or Coast Guard aviators who are rated pilots or Naval Flight Officers. Navy and Coast Guard Aircrewmen and Marine Corps Combat Aircrewmen are those persons formally designated as such and authorized to wear the respective Aircrew warfare badge. As circumstances may allow, eligibility criteria may be expanded to include other Naval Aviation persons, the categories of whom shall fit the general intent of the Philip H. Jones Naval Aviation Scholarship.

The Scholarship program will provide undergraduate students scholarships that cover or defer the cost of only tuition and fees. Scholarship funds cannot be used for any other expenses.

Scholarships may be renewable annually to a maximum of four years or degree attainment, whichever comes first. Renewal will depend on student academic achievement and the availability of funds. Applications for renewal will normally be considered before initial applications.

The value of the scholarship may change year-to-year; the amount of each annual scholarship and each renewal will be based on availability of funds.
