Jilly Murphy Memorial Scholarship for Aviation Safety

Jilly Murphy Memorial Scholarship for Aviation Safety

A $5000 scholarship is being offered to support a project or person which contributes to improved aviation safety in New Zealand, particularly in Canterbury.

Applications will open in October for the inaugural Jilly Murphy Memorial Scholarship for Aviation Safety. The scholarship is being offered jointly by Christchurch Airport and Airways Corporation, in memory of Jilly Murphy, a member of the Christchurch Airways tower team who tragically died in central Christchurch during the earthquake of February 22, 2011.

Jilly worked for Airways for 20 years as a highly skilled controller and was loved and respected by her colleagues at the airport. Aviation safety was very important to her and her family is supporting the scholarship because of its focus on that. A memorial seat has been placed in her honour at the base of the Airways air traffic control tower at Christchurch Airport.

The scholarship fund may be used for learning, resources, equipment or to supplement income for a person focussed on aviation safety. The project could be research, a process, a product or anything else than enhances aviation safety.

A shortlist of three applicants will be selected and advised on 22 January 2014 and interviewed by a panel consisting a representative each of Jilly’s family, Airways and Christchurch Airport. The successful applicant will be announced on 22 February, on the three-year anniversary of the quake.

TIMING: Applications open October 22, 2013 and close on December 22, 2013. Interviewees will be advised January 22, 2014 and the scholarship winner announced on February 22, 2014.

To enter, please download and complete the application form on www.christchurchairport.co.nz and/or www.airways.co.nz
