BWPA Scholarships for 2016

British Women Pilots’ Association – news on our upcoming 2016 Scholarships

Building on the huge success of our 2015 Diamond Jubilee Scholarships, for which we had over 80 applicants and six fantastic winners, BWPA is now pleased to announce its 2016 Scholarships.

And this year, we are doing things a little differently. We will be awarding three Scholarships to successful women applicants this year, one of which is again the BWPA CATS CPL/ATPL Scholarship, and the other two will be the new BWPA Flying Start Scholarship, and the new BWPA Flying High Scholarship. Both these scholarships will be for £1000, which is double the value of the individual 2015 Scholarships, and both will be available for any type of flying, from ballooning through to helicopters, and all points between.

As the names suggest, the BWPA Flying Start Scholarship will be available for new and very inexperienced pilots to gain their first qualifications, whereas the BWPA Flying High Scholarship will be available for more experienced pilots with at least a first qualification who wish, for example, to gain further qualifications or take part in significant competitions, or to undertake other suitable activities to help them further their personal flying aims. The BWPA CATS CPL/ATPL Scholarship is, as last year, for applicants with at least a PPL (A) or (H), and comprises the ground school element of a CPL or ATPL (A or H). It has again been kindly donated to the BWPA by CATS Aviation Training, Luton, and is worth almost £1,400. What is (and what is not) included in this Scholarships aimed at pilots intending to make a career in flying, will be detailed on the application form, along with the necessary qualifications for application.

Applications for all three scholarships will be via the BWPA Website, and further details plus the application forms will soon be posted on the BWPA Website - so do keep an eye on that! We will also be advertising these scholarships as widely as possible, and in liaison with other flying organisations, to reach the widest possible audience. The scholarship selection panels will comprise BWPA members plus representatives from other relevant flying organisations.Applications will all be by e-mail, as they were last year.

All those awarded BWPA 2016 Scholarships will also be invited to the BWPA Christmas Lunch on December 4th2016, the venue for which is yet to be announced.

A further newsflash will follow, as soon as the application forms are available on the BWPA Website, and we encourage all potential and current women pilots to consider applying.
