The sponsors of this scholarship would like to make a difference in the life of a woman over 50 years old who wants to learn to fly or who already has a pilot certificate (private, sport, or recreational) and wants to pursue an advanced certificate or rating, i.e. instrument, commercial, etc. The recipient will be chosen on the basis of merit, career aspirations, and dedication, as well as contributions to her community. Include in your essay a personal statement outlining how the funds will be used. Funds will be paid directly to the flight school to be applied to the recipient's account and must be used within a year of receiving the award.
