The Fairbanks International Airport Operators’ Council (AOC) announces Brian Grams as their 2022 scholarship recipient. Grams is currently enrolled in the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Associate of Applied Science, Aviation Maintenance program.

After Grams completes his degree programme this fall, he plans to stay in Alaska and combine his passion for outdoors and travelling with his career. He hopes to find himself working for a regional carrier either local to Fairbanks or in rural Alaska, preferably with a helicopter contractor.

Grams, a private pilot originally from Glennallen, Alaska, also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography with a concentration in Landscape Analysis and Climate Change and a minor in Geographic Information Systems. He graduated Cum Laude from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Once Grams has had the opportunity to work, travel and broaden his knowledge on newer aviation technology he can see himself settling in Fairbanks and opening his own business.

The AOC is thrilled to award this $2,000 scholarship to Grams to aid him in making his dream a reality.
