Despite the continuing progress that women are making in the workforce, many fields are still predominantly male. 

Aviation is one of these fields, with women making up just 5.3% of aircraft pilots and flight engineers. In order to create a more equal world where women are able to pursue any field without feeling alone, it’s critical that female students are supported.

This scholarship aims to support women who are pursuing their education in aviation.

Any female high school or undergraduate student who has volunteer or community service experience and is pursuing the aviation field may apply if they’re working towards a four-year degree in aviation, aviation mechanics, aviation medicine, aviation science, aviation engineering, or aviation business.

To apply, tell us about an experience that led you to pursue a degree in aviation or a related field. Additionally, tell us what becoming a woman in aviation would mean to you and how you plan to support female students pursuing careers in aviation in the future. 

Two winners will receive $1,000 each and one runner-up will receive $500.
