One of the goals we’ve had for NDPA for some time is to offer an annual scholarship to help someone learn to fly. After a lot of work and fundraising efforts, we are finally releasing the application for the first NDPA scholarship. This is a $500 scholarship towards the cost of obtaining a recreational, sport, or private pilots certificate. The applications are due by January 31, 2013 and we hope to present the award at the Upper Midwest Aviation Symposium this March in Fargo. Please help spread the word to those that are eligible to apply. Applications can be downloaded by clicking here.
While we are very excited to make this scholarship available, we still have a long way to go. We hope to continue growing this scholarship to eventually cover the majority of the cost of a pilots certificate. However, this takes funding. Thank you to those of you who have made a donation to get this scholarship started. If you have not given yet, please consider doing so to help the next generation of North Dakota pilots.
