The S&D Scholarship Program offers cash grants to be used through many professional development initiatives. Over $750,000 has been awarded through the program since 1997.

The NBAA S&D Committee offers scholarships through two programs to promote professional and career development for business aviation schedulers and dispatchers. The S&D Training Scholarship Program was launched in 2004 to offer opportunities to scholarship recipients to get access to hands-on-teaching initiatives. The training awards are granted in conjunction with annual sponsors.
