Association for Women in Aviation Maintenance
The Association for Women in Aviation Maintenance (AWAM) is a nonprofit organization formed to champion women's professional growth and enrichment in the aviation maintenance fields by providing opportunities for sharing information, networking, education, fostering a sense of community and increasing public awareness of women in the industry. AWAM is open to both men and women and also has membership opportunities for students and corporations. Membership consists of maintenance technicians, engineers, teachers, scientists, vendors and pilots that support maintenance in one form or another.
AWAM's goal to further STEM education is to help women in the aviation maintenance related fields and to find ways to network and support each other in this field. Specifically, AWAM maintains such programs as Abaris Training Scholarships, CAE Aircraft Maintenance Training Scholarship, and their American Eurocopter Maintenance Scholarship.
