Four scholarships for flight training, advanced ratings, or college tuition are offered for 2014 for pilots who live or study in New England.

The Georgia Pappas Honorary Scholarship will award $1,500, and is open to men and women. The William Bridge Scholarship and the Anne Wood Kelly Memorial Scholarship, each for $1,500, are open to women with at least a private pilot certificate.
