Delta Air Lines will award a $5,000 scholarship to a student currently enrolled in a baccalaureate degree in aerospace/aeronautical, electrical, or mechanical engineering.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens.

1) Who or what inspired you to pursue a career in aerospace/aeronautical, electrical, or mechanical engineering?
