Scholarships

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.

Details are found in the Outline and Application.  View a scholarship summary in this flyer.  Questions on Minnesota 99s scholarships can be directed to Patti Sandusky.
