Women in Aviation International (WAI) has announced that it is now accepting applications for scholarships to be awarded in 2019. At least 108 scholarships and internships are available for a wide array of aviation-oriented pursuits, including flight, maintenance, aerospace engineering, dispatch and aviation management. The organizations says it has awarded a total of $11,495,581 in scholarships since 1995, with $695,500 awarded in 2018 alone.
“With a WAI scholarship, attaining an aviation career becomes more possible when the financial burden is eased,” said WAI President Dr. Peggy Chabrian. “Our scholarships have literally changed the lives of the hundreds of women who have benefited from the generosity of benefactors ranging from multinational corporations to individuals.” The scholarships will be awarded during WAI’s annual conference, which will take place in Long Beach, California, from March 14-16, 2019.
Individuals can apply for up to three scholarships. The caveat is that applicants must be WAI members by Nov. 1, 2018, to be eligible.
