Women Military Aviators Dream of Flight Scholarship

Women Military Aviators (WMA) seeks to preserve the important role women have played in creating and supporting the American Spirit through their contributions to flight, aeronautics and space. These elite bands of women have not only a love of aviation, but have put their lives on the line in defense of their country through their military service. WMA is committed to passing this legacy from one generation of women to another and has established an annual scholarship program in support of this commitment.

Advocating the love of aviation, WMA offers an annual scholarship to advance a woman in her pursuit of flight ratings at an accredited institution or FAA Part 141 or 61 approved flight school. Recipients will also be given a one-year membership to WMA.

Over the past 30 years this scholarship has been given to select candidates so that they may pursue opportunities in aviation.

Each applicant should supply, in addition to the basic WAI application requirements, a narrative addressing demonstrated persistence and determination to fly and stated ability to complete training at an accredited institution or FAA Part 141 or 61 approved flight school within one year of scholarship award. Also, identify the school, college, university and/or Part 141 or 61 approved school where training will be completed; and address the program and/or ratings being sought. The applicant should address interest and/or participation in military aviation, and financial need. Our Scholarship Fund is always in need of donations – big or small. It is a great way to share our dreams of flight with others. Click here or on the DONATE button above or CONTACT the WMA Treasurer to send your financial gift.
