Programs

We will partner with you to lift up our communities and our industry.

Who do we support?

Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant from the JetBlue Foundation.

The JetBlue Foundation is committed to supporting aviation-related education, and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) initiatives. Inspiring the next generation of aviation pioneers is a responsibility JetBlue takes very seriously. At JetBlue, inspiration is more than an idea – it’s our mission. No other airline has gone on record to solely focus on supporting aviation education, and we are proud of our commitment to serve the communities in which we live and fly.

    • Aviation technology
    • Aviation engineering
    • Aviation operations
