Christine Reed Memorial Flight Scholarship

Women in Aviation, International, in partnership with J. Elliot Marketing (Santa Clara, California), offer a $2,500 flight training scholarship in memory of Christine Reed. Christine never completed her flight training. She loved airplanes and airports, and she attempted to become a private pilot. Christine passed away unexpectedly at the age of 32.

The Christine Reed Memorial Flight Scholarship is open to women ages 16-30 who have soloed within the last six months preceding applying for this scholarship and are working toward a recreational, sport pilot, or private pilot certificate.
