The San Diego Air & Space Museum administers four competitive scholarships for San Diego County graduating seniors who plan to attend a four-year college or university. The Bill Gibbs, R.A. Rearwin and Jennings Kelly Scarborough scholarships are reserved for students with strong aviation or aerospace related interests, who plan to pursue a degree in mathematics, physics, the sciences or engineering. Each has a different emphasis.
The Convair Alumni Association scholarships are reserved for direct descendants (either natural or adopted) of former San Diego area employees of Consolidated Aircraft Corporation, Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation, or the Convair, Astronautics or Space Systems Divisions of General Dynamics Corporation. There are no restrictions as to the applicant’s field of study.
Over the past 26 years, 268 talented San Diego County high school graduating seniors have been awarded a total of $759,000 through these scholarships. If you are interested in increasing their reach, please consider making a tax deductible donation to any or all of these funds, or, you may wish to consider establishing a new endowment for scholarships to honor the life and career of a loved one.
