Scholarships page on Facebook

Posted by Janet Davidson on Dec 5, 2017 4:54 pm

I work at AOPA, in the Pilot Information Center. Every week we receive inquiries from people who are interested in learning to fly. They are surprised that there are scholarships available.There some really good websites with scholarships information, but I didn't see any Facebook page for scholarships, so I have set one up. 

My thought is to create a community where folks can come and post about scholarships (anything aviation-related - not just flight training), news, recipients, how to complete a scholarship application etc, etc. I plan on sharing this with all the aviation organisations, flight schools & colleges and anywhere else that might be relevant. 

I just started setting this up the other night, so it is in the very early stages.

Feel free to share everywhere you can think of! And any information you feel may be useful.

And don't forget the wide range of flight training scholarships available through AOPA! In 2017, we awarded 23 scholarships of $5,000 each to high school students pursuing flight training and 18 additional scholarships ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 each to individuals of all ages. All the scholarships were made possible through generous donations to the AOPA Foundation.

Thanks to the continuing support of our donors, we're looking forward to awarding a similar number of scholarships in 2018. The application period will open in the first quarter of the new year, so keep an eye on AOPA.org for eligibility and application information.
