Through the initiative, AOPA will award a minimum of $100,000 in flight training scholarships to deserving high school students who are genuinely passionate about pursuing a pilot’s certificate. Each winner will receive $5,000 toward primary flight training.

AOPA Foundation Flight Training Scholarships

The AOPA Foundation will award two types of scholarships, ranging from $2,500 to $10,000, to recognize and support prospective and certificated pilots of all ages pursuing their aviation goals.

Primary Certification Scholarships can be used for an initial certification, such as a Sport, Private or Recreational pilot certification.

Applicants in this category must be seeking one of the following ratings or certificates: Instrument, Commercial, CFI (Certificated Flight Instructor), CFII (Certificated Flight Instructor – Instrument), or MEI (Multi-Engine – Instructor).
