JetBlue Foundation Student Scholarship:

The JetBlue Foundation offered 2 student scholarships to attend the Center for Responsible Travel's (CREST) and the Puntacana Ecological Foundation's Innovators Think Tank. This is a unique opportunity for students to learn about key issues involving climate change and tourism. After receiving 90+ diverse and inspiring applications, two outstanding recipients were chosen:

    • Stefan Knights, Hugh Wooding Law School, Barbados
    • Katrina Khan, University of West Indies, Trinidad & Tobago

We look forward to their contributions on this important topic!

On the JetBlue Foundation:

Since JetBlue's beginnings, we have set our sights on inspiring humanity beyond air travel- for customers, crewmembers and the communities we serve. One way we have done this is by showing support for STEM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) through relationships with education-focused organizations. The Foundation's mission is to support aviation-related education in general and Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) in particular, and foster effective programs that empower and provide opportunities to students and communities. The JetBlue Foundation will help to advance and provide learning opportunities for underserved groups by working hand-in-hand with local and national education institutions that will support aviation-related programs and cultivate influential programs.
