NOTE: The following is a very small sample of the scholarships available to individuals with aviation-related goals. EVERONE is highly encouraged to independently research aviation scholarships/grants (online), as there are hundreds of other opportunities out there.
Individuals are encouraged to apply for ALL scholarships available (even if they don’t meet ALL of the criteria). Members of several organizations were able to verify that, for some years, the money isn’t given out because they had ZERO APPLICANTS. Remember, it never hurts to apply!
Please note that MOST (but not all) of the deadlines for the 2023 cycle have passed; however, many of the scholarship organizers have assured that the same opportunities will be available for the 2024 cycle.
THE FLIGHT SCHOOL HAS A COPY OF THE POWERPOINT PRESENTATION (IN PRINT) THAT HAS MORE DETAILS FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL SCHOLARSHIP.
