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. These four scholarships are open to all women pilots, including members of The Ninety-Nines. Applicants do not need to be a member upon application but must commit to 99s membership in International and the MN chapter for two years after a scholarship is awarded.
International 99s Scholarships and other 99s Section/Chapter Scholarships:
A number of scholarships are offered through the International 99s and other 99s sections and chapters. Check the International 99s website for a complete listing of available scholarships. Questions on International 99s scholarships can be directed to Marcy Drescher, our Scholarship Coordinator for all International 99s scholarships.
