The NGPA Education Fund (NGPA-EF) provides scholarships to aspiring aviators with the desire to develop professional aviation skills and ratings beyond the private pilot certificate, and who have demonstrated community involvement, including support of the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. We have given more than $202,000 in 65 awards since 1998. In 2011, we awarded our first David M. Charlebois scholarship. This is a special scholarship given to an exceptional candidate. This scholarship is named after one of our own members, David Charlebois, who was the First Officer on American Airlines Flight 77 that hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
To be eligible for an NGPA-EF Scholarship, an individual must:
- Be pursuing a career as a professional pilot, or seeking to enhance their professional piloting skills;
- Be at least 18 years old at the date of application; and
- Have earned at least a private pilot certificate
- Advanced flight training (e.g. instrument, multi-engine, commercial, instructor, or ATP)
- Tuition and fees, within a flight education program at an accredited college or university, which cover the cost of advanced flight training.
It is not necessary to be a citizen of the USA or to be attending training in the USA to apply.
Note: Scholarship awards are paid directly to the educational institution or flight school, to offset the cost of the recipient's training. Awards are based in US Dollar amounts. The number of awards may vary from year to year based on funding ability. For one truly exceptional applicant each year, the Education Fund may award the David M. Charlebois Scholarship.
