Women Military Aviators (WMA) seeks to preserve, for history, the important role women have played in creating and supporting the American spirit through their contributions to flight, aeronautics, and space. This elite band of women has not only a love of aviation, but has put their lives on the line in defense of their country through their military service. WMA is committed to passing this legacy from one generation of women to another and has established an annual scholarship program in support of this commitment. Advocating the love of aviation, WMA offers an annual scholarship to advance a woman in her pursuit of flight ratings at an accredited institution or FAA Part 141 approved flight school. Over the past 30 years this scholarship has been given to select candidates so that they may pursue opportunities in aviation.
Each applicant should supply-in addition to the basic WAI application requirements-a narrative addressing your demonstrated persistence and determination to flight and stated ability to complete training at an accredited institution or FAA Part 141-approved school within one year of scholarship award. Also identify the school, college, university, and/or Part 141 approved school where training will be completed and address the program and/or ratings being sought. Address your interest and/or participation in military aviation, and address your financial need.
