In 2005 the Chuck Yeager Foundation established a scholarship to assist those who may not otherwise be able to become involved in aviation. This scholarship will be awarded to a deserving WAI member who has applied for other WAI scholarships and who has unique circumstances that impede their ability to advance their aviation plans. The recipient of this scholarship will be selected from the applications submitted for other scholarships. The selection will be based on information submitted in the scholarship application. No separate application is required.
