Scholarship Available for Private Pilot License


"Are you interested in competing for a scholarship to earn a private pilot license?  If so, the Air Force is funding scholarships for AF JROTC cadets to attend private pilot training at public/private universities during the summer of 2021.  The scholarship will pay for round-trip airfare, room and board, collegiate academics, and flight hours required to potentially earn a Private Pilot’s Certificate through an in-residence collegiate program that is approximately eight (8) weeks in length.

Application criteria:  - Applicant must be a current sophomore, junior, or senior AFJROTC cadet who understand they are volunteering for a scholarship to a public/ private university.   - There is no military service commitment or obligation, nor does program completion justify acceptance to military service, ROTC scholarship, or military academy appointment.   - Applicant must be at least 17 years old by 9 July 2021, obtain a minimum fitness assessment score of 50, and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better (on a 4.0 scale) to be nominated.  - Selected cadets will be identified through a competitive boarding process.

Application window opens Sept 8, 2020.  If you're interested, please see a Guidance Counselor or a AF JROTC instructor for more information."
