Four Department of Aerospace Engineering students have been awarded Vertical Flight Foundation (VFF) Scholarships. VFF scholarships are awarded to promising undergraduate and graduate students who plan to pursue careers in vertical flight.

The University of Maryland recipients were:

  • Cody Karcher (Undergraduate Category - Barry Baskett Scholarship)
  • Elena Shrestha (M.S. Category - Joseph P. Cribbins Scholarship) 
  • Andrew Lind (Ph.D. Category - Feri Farassat Scholarship) 
  • Harinder Jit Singh (Ph.D. Category - Evan A. Fradenburgh Scholarship) 

The Vertical Flight Foundation was established in 1967 as the philanthropic arm of the American Helicopter Society (AHS). The scholarship program was established in 1977, and since 1980, the merit-based program has been a great success story, with over 400 scholarships awarded to date. Many recipients are now leaders in the vertical flight technical community.

Students were presented with their scholarship certificates and checks at the Grand Awards Banquet held during the 69th AHS Annual Forum on May 22, 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona.
