The Michael Wallace Memorial Scholarship Fund is beginning its nineteenth year. We have been proud to provide scholarships every year to young student pilots who have a love for soaring. The Michael Wallace Memorial Scholarship Fund is not just a local, or club supported scholarship. Grants are awarded nationally, and we are proud of the fact that in the past 18 years we have supported students all across the United States.
This year, the grant is $1,000.00, to be paid directly to a flight school or club for the benefit of the recipient of the scholarship. Applications for the grant are due by March 15, 2020. Grants will be awarded by April 30, 2020.
Students 14 to 22 years of age are eligible to apply and the requirements are fairly easy.
Club members, flight instructors, all of you who believe as I do, please help us to get your students and their parents interested in applying for the scholarship. I’m sure that parents would be especially interested in the financial help this scholarship could offer. If you have not already received an email with a poster and application form, you can download one from the Michael Wallace Scholarship website. Go to michaelwallacescholarship.org
