Women in Aviation International is offering 98 scholarships valued at more than $480,000, the organization announced July 1. Applications must be signed and postmarked Nov. 16.
“Our scholarship program is not just for pilots, not just for students, not just for young people, and not just for women,” WAI President Peggy Chabrian said. There are opportunities for flight training, spin training, advanced certificates and ratings, type ratings, dispatcher training, maintenance, and more.
Applicants must be WAI members prior to Nov. 1. More information is available at the website. Applicants are urged to check the website periodically as new scholarships are added until the November cutoff date.
Scholarships will be awarded during WAI’s twenty-seventh annual conference, to be held March 10 through 12, 2016, in Nashville. The organization said that at that point, its scholarship program will have awarded a cumulative $10 million worth of scholarships to more than 1,300 members.
