Women Military Aviators (WMA) seeks to preserve, for history, the important role women have played in creating and supporting the American spirit through their contributions to flight, aeronautics, and space. These elite bands of women not only have a love of aviation, but also put their lives on the line in defense of their country through their military service. WMA is committed to passing this legacy from one generation of women to another and has established an annual scholarship program in support of this commitment. Advocating the love of aviation, WMA offers an annual scholarship to advance a woman in her pursuit of flight ratings at an accredited institution or FAA Part 141 approved flight school. Recipient will also be given a one-year membership to WMA. Over the past 30 years this scholarship has been given to select candidates so that they may pursue opportunities in aviation.
Each applicant should supply, in addition to the basic WAI application requirements, a narrative addressing demonstrated persistence and determination to fly and stated ability to complete training at an accredited institution or FAA Part 141 approved flight school within one year of scholarship award. Also, identify the school, college, university, and/or Part 141 approved school where ratings are being sought. The applicant should address interest and/or participation in military aviation, and financial need.
