Upwind Foundation Aviation Scholarship
The Upwind Foundation provides a scholarship that includes flight and ground training for a high school student to prepare them to obtain their Private Pilot certificate during the summer between their junior and senior year. Upwind was created to provide scholarships for aspiring young pilots to obtain their pilot’s certificate as a way to promote general aviation and to cultivate their interest in aviation as a career. Upwind awarded twenty scholarships to high school students between 2013 and 2018 including the first ever helicopter scholarship in 2016. For 2019, Upwind is seeking high school students to apply for the airplane scholarship. Upwind selects high school students and awards them a scholarship for an intensive, nine-week flight and ground training program provided by expert instructors. Additionally, the scholarship recipient(s) will receive mentorship and guidance from other pilots, and enjoy many other social and flying activities. The 2019 program winner(s) will be selected in March and will begin ground training in April with flight training beginning in June.
