AOPA Aviation Scholarships Available


The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association has opened applications for its latest round of scholarships that are made possible through donations to the AOPA Foundation, and are a major benefit to AOPA members, helping them reach their aviation goals.

The program offers the opportunity for more than 100 high school students, teachers, primary flight training students, pilots seeking advanced ratings and certificates, and aspiring aircraft mechanics to score more than $1 million in scholarship funds.

Scholarships are available in multiple categories. The primary training scholarships include sport, recreational, or private pilot certification; the advanced training scholarship includes the instrument rating and higher certification levels; and additional scholarships can be applied toward aviation maintenance technician certification. Scholarship awards range from $2,500 to $14,000. The deadline for scholarship applications is Friday, February 11, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Certain criteria must be met to qualify for a scholarship. Applicants may only submit only one application that will be considered for all scholarships for which he or she is eligible. Review our Frequently Asked Questions for additional information, including how to become an AOPA member.
