RTCA strives to reflect our core values through our awards and scholarship initiatives. Since 1975, RTCA has presented our Jackson Award to an outstanding graduate in the field of aviation electronics and communications. In 2022, we have launched a scholarship through the National Aviation Hall of Fame which provides funding to STEM educators in Kindergarten through 6th grade. We hope this new partnership inspires the future generation to join the aviation community.
