Serious Dollars: $355K in WAI Scholarships Available

But... The Deadline Approaches

Here's an impressive set of numbers... Women in Aviation, International's (WAI) annual scholarship opportunities now total $355,000 for 2008, but to qualify, interested individuals must apply by December 1, 2007. This year's scholarships range in value from a $500 academic scholarship up through a typerating valued at $35,000.

"We have 28 different companies, organizations and individuals making this scholarship money available to our members," said WAI President Dr. Peggy Chabrian. "In fact, we even have a number of past scholarship winners who want to provide new opportunities for others by funding scholarships of their own."
 
In order to apply for any of the 46 scholarships offered this year, an individual must be an active member of Women in Aviation. (Membership is open to both women and men.) All scholarships are not academic scholarships, but rather are available for flight training, maintenance training, and engineering, as well as for WAI members who want to change careers mid-life, for example.

"By the time we announce the scholarship recipients at our 2008 Conference, there may even be more scholarships. It's not unusual for a new sponsor to offer a scholarship at the last minute or to offer scholarships to two individuals since it is too difficult to select just one winner." added Dr. Chabrian (pictured below). This year's WAI Conference is scheduled for March 13-15, 2008, at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center in San Diego.

A complete description of each scholarship along with complete instructions, useful tips to increase your chances of winning as well as the application form are available on line. Women in Aviation, International is a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization dedicated to providing networking, mentoring and scholarship opportunities for women and men who are striving for challenging and fulfilling careers in the aviation and aerospace industries.
