SUSLA granted $500,000 by FAA to spur aviation jobs
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Are you looking for a career in the sky?
Southern University at Shreveport was granted half a million dollars by the Federal Aviation Administration in an effort to generate interest and prepare workers for a career in aviation maintenance, according to an announcement from Rep. Mike Johnson.
The grant is one of the largest offered by the FAA.
In 2018, Congress became aware of a projected shortage of aviation maintenance technical workers. To combat this, the FFA was given the authority to distribute grants to educational institutions nationwide.
