Oris Dunham Jr. and Sylvia Dunham Scholarship

The IAP CoP is proud to introduce the Oris Dunham Jr. and Sylvia Dunham Scholarship for the Airport Management Accreditation Program (AMPAP). The scholarship aims to enable aviation professionals the opportunity to continue their professional development.
