Four Students Receive Vertical Flight Foundation Scholarships

by Torie Wells on April 5, 2019

Four Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute students have received a scholarship from the Vertical Flight Foundation. Undergraduate student Colin Hamilton and graduate students Ahmad Amer, Matthew Misiorowski, and Ariel Walter are among just 26 students nationwide to receive this honor this year.

The foundation, which is the philanthropic arm of the Vertical Flight Society, gives these merit-based scholarships to college students “demonstrating an interest in pursuing engineering related careers in vertical flight technology.”

All four recipients conduct research with the Center for Mobility with Vertical Lift (MOVE) at Rensselaer. MOVE is dedicated to research aimed at innovative development of vertical takeoff and landing aircraft.
