Scholarships & Funding
This is a “Work in Progress” list of available scholarships and other funding opportunities for pilots, in addition to what we at WGUK are offering.
Some are age-restricted, some are aimed specifically at female pilots, some are available to all. If you can think of any others not mentioned here please do let us know (email@example.com)!
- Gliding-specific and the BGA’s adopted charity, formerly known as the Caroline Trust, and you can apply for Caroline Awards or Ted Lys Awards.
While the Caroline Awards are specifically for young people, the Ted Lys ones are open to all ages (and also organisations, not just individuals).
- Application deadline for Ted Lys Award (not sure about Caroline Award): 31st January
- Application pages:
- The British Women Pilots’ Association offers a number of scholarships to women. Not all of them are purely for power pilots, there are some gliding or more generic ones, too.
- Application deadline: was early May in 2019, probably similar this year
- This is listed under Junior Gliding, but there are some which are not age-restricted. Worth a look in any case.
(Hopefully) more to come…
