The Minnesota 99s Chapter is committed to supporting our mission: to promote the advancement of aviation through education, scholarships and mutual support.
Minnesota 99s Scholarships:
The Minnesota 99s Chapter offers annually in March two $1000 scholarships and two $500 currency scholarships to qualifying applicants. One $1,000 scholarship is awarded for course work toward a Private Pilot certificate and the second $1000 scholarship is awarded for an additional rating or endorsement. Two $500 scholarships are awarded to becoming current in flying and are offered in memory of WWII WASP Elizabeth (Liz) Strohfus.
Applicants for the Private Pilot scholarship must be a member for six months prior to applying. Applicants for the additional rating scholarship must be a member for one year prior to applying. Scholarship winners must commit to 99s membership in International and the MN chapter for two years after a scholarship is awarded.
