The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) plans to award a $1,000 scholarship, through Women in Aviation International, to an aviation educator to help further his or her instructional skills, knowledge or credentials. The funds may be used at a recognized aviation education facility or other program meeting specific criteria.
The scholarship is intended for anyone possessing current aviation instructor credentials (such as sport pilot, flight, ground, or maintenance instructor, or anyone with an ongoing history of teaching an aviation technical subject at any level). Interested applicants should submit a description of their current involvement in aviation education, along with a copy of documentation as an aviation educator (e.g. AGI certificate, teaching certificate).
While both women and men are eligible, all applicants must be members of Women in Aviation International (WAI). For more information and an application: WAI.org
