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. Follow WAI guidelines and in your essay tell how the funds will be used, your goals, and any relevant information. One letter of recommendation must be from a pilot who has flown with you.
Scholarship will only be paid out to a South African flight school. Interviews will be in Johannesburg, South Africa, in February 2018.
