An important part of applying for the grant is paying close attention to the application. Applications can sometimes be long and laborious, but you shouldn't underestimate how important it is that your work was done properly and without omission. Use caution to insure that you will not lose out because of carelessness.

After filing, it's important to know when the AIAA Graduate Award confers the award and actually dispenses the resources so that you can know if you will be able to count on the grant to assist with your financial needs and what assistance it will provide, as there may be restrictions on how you can use the AIAA Graduate Award. You might find it challenging to be able to cover the expenses associated with school, and having the additional resources of the AIAA Graduate Award to defray some of the costs can make things much easier.
