The Keep Flying scholarship was created after 9/11 to offer an intermediate level flight scholarship. For 2018, Keep Flying scholarship and Southern African Women in Aviation & Aerospace Industry (SAWIA) are offering one U.S. $5,000 (approximately R65,0000) scholarship to an individual working on an instrument, commercial, multiengine, or flight instructor certificate. Candidates must be citizens of a SADC country, hold a private pilot certificate, have 100 hours' flight time, and have passed all written exams for the certificate sought.

Scholarship will only be paid out to a South African flight school. Interviews will be in Johannesburg, South Africa, in February 2018.
