Girls With Wings has traditionally offered a Private Pilot Scholarship to help defray the cost of flight training lessons in pursuit of a private pilot certificate. This scholarship is targeting those individuals who have soloed but have not completed the Private Pilot Course. The Private Pilot Scholarship is an award in the amount of $1000.00.
In addition, the new, second scholarship offered by Girls With Wings is the Dreams Take Flight Scholarship.
