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 annually offers two $1000 scholarships and one $500 scholarship to qualifying applicants.  Scholarships are awarded annually in March.  One $1000 scholarship is awarded for course work toward a Private Pilot certificate and the second $1000 scholarship is awarded for an additional rating or endorsement.  One $500 scholarship is awarded to becoming current in flying and is offered in memory of WWII WASP Elizabeth (Liz) Strohfus.  These scholarships are open to all women pilots, including members of The Ninety-Nines.
