Sporty’s Academy has compiled a list of available directories for the availability of aviation scholarships.  Potentially thousands of opportunities are available for you.  Please check  carefully for eligibility and deadlines and remember these important tips:

  • Carefully review scholarship requirements to ensure eligibility before applying
  • Be meticulous in reviewing forms and items that must be submitted with applications and be accurate in your completion
  • Stand out in the crowd – include background, service and experiences that are uniquely you
  • Don’t procrastinate – if required to obtain a letter of reference, start early and don’t expect those who may offer recommendations to be able to deliver a polished letter on a day’s notice
  • Respect the deadlines – deadlines do not mean post marked. Allow enough time for your applications to arrive well ahead of deadline
