A pilot shortage is upon us and we need new pilots replacing those retiring in the future.
Today, pilot training is very expensive and many prospective pilots must pay out of pocket to fund their aviation education. The sky's the limit for many pilots, but in order to reach their goals, they must be supported throughout their educational adventure.
To suppress the pilot shortage we are seeing today and to help budding pilots achieve their dreams, the KG Aviation Scholarship will be awarded to one student currently pursuing a Private Pilot Certificate or Commercial Pilot Certificate.
All current high school and undergraduate students are eligible to apply for this scholarship. To apply, please write an essay or submit a video about why you decided to pursue a career in aviation.
Please submit EITHER an essay or a video that answers the following questions.
(50-75 words): What current Certificates do you have? How many hours do you currently have?
(400-500 words) Why did you decide to choose a career in aviation? What do you hope to achieve in your career? Why is aviation important to you?
The application deadline is Sep 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Oct 1, 2021.
The scholarship award is $533.
The winner will be publicly announced on Oct 1, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
