The 2021 JetBlue Foundation Grants Will Help 10 Charitable Organizations Continue their Critical Work Connecting Students from Traditionally Underrepresented Communities to Careers in Aviation. Applications for the 2022 JetBlue Foundation Granting Cycle are Open Now through March 25, for Grants Up to $50,000 Each.
JetBlue today announced “the newest round of grants from the JetBlue Foundation, the first airline foundation focused solely on supporting aviation and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. For this round, the JetBlue Foundation awarded 10 charitable organizations with grants to support and advance their education and mentorship programs, furthering the Foundation’s mission of increased advocacy for inclusion, gender and racial parity within STEM and aviation.
In 2020, the JetBlue Foundation issued a round of rapid-response grants to 12 previous grant recipients whose programs were at-risk or severely impacted by the effects of the pandemic. This past October, the Foundation reopened the granting cycle to new applicants who are fighting for equity in aviation and STEM careers for traditionally underrepresented or disadvantaged groups.”
