About the scholarship

The Women in Aviation Tampa Bay Chapter's mission is to help young people in the Tampa Bay area become aware of opportunities in the fields of aerospace and aviation. Funds raised from Girls in Aviation Day support chapter functions including scholarship opportunities for members in the Tampa Bay community.

The Women in Aviation Tampa Bay chapter is offering a $1000 flight training scholarship to a member of our chapter to be used for dual instruction for a Biennial Flight Review, Instrument Proficiency Check, toward a new rating or certificate, or ground and safety training. If using the scholarship toward the private certificate, a solo endorsement must have been accomplished.
