Girls With Wings Awards Two $1000 Scholarships

Nonprofit Focuses Efforts On Introducing Young Girls To Aviation-Related Occupations

Girls With Wings, Inc. has announced their 5th Annual Scholarship Program. The application packet requires an essay with photo stating why the applicant believes she is a role model for Girl With Wings, to include her motivation, inspirations and future plans. Applicants must not have yet received a private pilot's license but have completed her solo. Entries are to be received between July 1st and July 31st, 2011.

At least two scholarship winners will be selected and eligible for $1000 to be used toward flying lessons. The fund is currently $2600 – and the option of an additinal scholarship is a possibility. The awardees agree to submit three updates with pictures taken during flight training and a final essay summarizing how the scholarship helped her, what she learned and her intent to continue her work as a Girls With Wings role model.

Last year’s winners were Janice Hernandez, a student of aviation management at Mt San Antonio College/Southern Illinois University, and Rose Bridges, an Air Force ROTC cadet at Florida State University. They are both on the GWW message board and their final essays are available on the GWW website.

Girls With Wings, Inc., is a nonprofit organization that focuses its efforts on introducing young girls to their role models in aviation-related occupations. Website activities and inspirational stories of women involved in various fields of aviation will motivate girls to pursue their own skyward adventures. Fundraising for outreach activities is done through the sales of Girls With Wings merchandise designed to let everyone know, “Yes, Girls Can Fly!” While some may view some of our products as just t-shirts, we believe that it is in fact a statement about the potential of girls to be intimately connected with Aviation (and other Science, Technology, Engineering and Math based fields) from the time they are born.

Girls With Wings is a nonprofit organization using aviation to entertain and educate girls about their limitless opportunities for personal growth via an interactive website and presentations to girls groups and organizations. The scholarships are funded through private donations.
