The Aviation Institute of Maintenance offers this grant so that the veteran will not need any student loans to support their cost of attendance.

Aviation Institute of Maintenance’s (AIM) Philadelphia campus will award veteran students, eligible for Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) benefits at the 100% coverage level, a grant that will cover any out-of-pocket tuition costs after their VA benefits and any Pell grants have been applied as long as they do not participate in the federal Title IV Loan programs. The grant is only offered at AIM’s Philadelphia campus.
AIM’s commitment to their Veterans assures that service men and women transition from the military with financial freedom and the skills and certifications needed to attain employment in their chosen field and thrive as professionals in the civilian workplace. The grant does not cover books, supplies, housing, or charges for repeat coursework the VA does not, by policy, cover. Each academic year, the institution will consider Chapter 33 benefits and any federal Pell Grant funding as payment in full, up to the full tuition and fee cost for the program. Recipients’ accounts are reviewed each semester of the academic year for receipt of VA payment and recipients are awarded the grant to cover eligible remaining tuition and fees for that semester.
AIM Philadelphia offers training in aviation maintenance, avionics and maintenance tech. The Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to excel as an aircraft mechanic and prepares them to pass the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) test to become a certified Airframe and Powerplant Technician. In the Aviation Maintenance Technician Avionics Program (AMTA), scholars acquire hands-on experience in the hangar and avionics trainers while studying the general and airframe subjects required by the FAA, as well as the electronics and avionics subjects needed to test for the Aircraft Electronics Technician’s certification and CertTEC exams. The Maintenance Technician program draws from AIM’s core coursework in professional maintenance fields and includes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10- hour general safety online certification.
The AIM facility is located at 3001 Grant Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19114 and the next start date is August 24th, 2020. For more information regarding AIM Philadelphia’s programs, please visit www.AviationMaintenance.edu or call (215) 676-7700.
