AOPA announces more than $156,000 in scholarships

AOPA is offering more than 40 scholarships this year worth more than $156,000 through three different programs: AOPA AV8RS teen membership, the AOPA You Can Fly High School Flight Training Scholarship, and the AOPA Foundation Scholarship.
AOPA flight training scholarships available.

AOPA’s scholarships are a great way to simultaneously grow the pilot community and teach young people the responsibility and skills that lead to careers in aviation and aerospace,” said Cindy Hasselbring, AOPA senior director of the high school aviation initiative.

The AOPA Foundation scholarships will be awarded to passionate AOPA members, ages 16 and up, in their efforts to earn an initial pilot certificate, and the deadline to apply is July 7.

The You Can Fly High School Aviation Scholarship program will award 20 flight training scholarships to teens ages 15 to 18 (AOPA membership is not required).

Finally, the AOPA AV8RS Scholarship will award up to four scholarships totaling $15,000 to deserving members of AOPA’s AV8RS program, a free AOPA membership for teens ages 13 to 18. The scholarships will go to individuals pursuing an aviation-related goal, including a primary pilot certificate, study in an aviation or aerospace field through an accredited aviation program, or attending an aviation or aerospace camp.

The deadline for both the You Can Fly High School Flight Training Scholarship and the AOPA AV8RS Scholarship is Sept. 30.
