    2) The Goverment is giving out free scholarships in order to attract more people to get(go) into the aviation field due to short labor(shortage of manpower).
    3) The Goverment is giving out free scholarships in order to boost up the labor number (manpower) in the aviation industry.
    4) There is a short labor in the aviation indstry.
    I prefer to use the word 'manpower' instead of 'labour' which connotes 'unskilled labour'.

    2) Goverment is giving out free scholarship in order to attract more people to get into the aviation field due to short labor.
    The government is awarding free scholarships in order to attract more people into the short-staffed aviation industry.

    3) Goverment is giving out free scholarship in order to boost up the labor number in the aviation industry.
    The government is awarding free scholarships in order to boost the number of employees in the aviation industry.

    4) There is a short labor in the aviation indstry.
    There is a labour shortage in the aviation industry.
    My suggestions are above.
    Notes: THE government......
    free scholarships (plural)
    to boost (not boost up)
