Becoming a pilot can be expensive but the AOPA Foundation wants to help by providing scholarships to 10 deserving flight students. Nine will be given $9,000 and one especially worthy applicant will receive $12,000.
Applicants must be pursuing a sport, recreational, or private pilot certificate, such as those offered by US Aviation Academy. To earn the scholarship you must also be a US resident 16 years or older, hold a current FAA student pilot certificate, be a paying member of the AOPA, and not have completed their check ride at the time of application.
Candidates who believe their past accomplishments and desire will put them above the rest should apply here. The deadline is August 22, 2014 Eastern Daylight Time and winners will be notified before October 4th.
