In 2003, the Royal Aeronautical Society launched the Centennial Scholarship Fund in celebration of 100 years of flight, and to look forward to the next generation of aerospace pioneers and experts in the 21st century.

Thanks to the generous support of the sponsors of the Fund, representing all areas of membership of the RAeS – from our corporate partners large and small, to individual members – the Fund has gone from strength to strength and we have been able to provide support to a number of outstanding students and team initiatives.
