More than 100 individual scholarships are available in areas ranging from aerospace to engineering, from maintenance to flight training. Many type ratings are available. As in past years, scholarships are not just for young people or students. A variety of scholarships are targeted for people in mid-career or even retirement.

“Scholarships change lives, boost careers, and open doors for our members,” said Kelly Murphy, WAI director of communications. “Scholarships are a major membership benefit, and we urge our members to take the opportunity to apply.”
