While ultimately worthwhile, the training and education required to begin entry-level work in the aviation industry can be intimidatingly expensive. 

Becoming a pilot with no previous experience costs an average of nearly $88,000 and can take years of work. All of this effort pays off in the long run, as pilots make a median salary of over $121,000 per year. However, the high price tag of pilot training discourages many aspiring students from pursuing aviation.

This scholarship aims to support future pilots by easing the burden of the financial cost of pilot training and education. 

Any high school junior, senior, or undergraduate student who is interested in becoming a pilot or pursuing aviation may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about your aviation goals and what inspired you to pursue this career.
