This scholarship was established to honor the memory of a young woman who was well on her way to achieve her dream of becoming an airline pilot, when she lost her life in an airplane accident. The funds for this scholarship are generously donated by the Francesca Norris Memorial Fund and the US Aviation Academy.
The International Society of Women Airline Pilots (ISA+21) will award two $5,000 scholarships (one of those is co-sponsored by the US Aviation Academy) to women working to acquire a CFI, CFII, or MEI rating, in honor of Francesca's memory. The recipient of the ISA+21/USAA Francesca Norris Memorial Scholarship will attend US Aviation Academy at Denton, Texas, for her training.
