British Women Pilots’ Association announces its 2023 aviation scholarships

The British Women Pilots’ Association (BWPA) has announced the launch of its coveted aviation scholarships.

The BWPA offers scholarships every year to support women in the UK of all ages and backgrounds in achieving their flying dreams, underlying one of its key aims, of promoting women’s training and employment within the sector. This year’s scholarships will open for applications in early September.

Around 200 women from across the UK applied for the scholarships in 2022. Applicants must be BWPA members and will be asked to submit information on their current aviation experience, what they enjoy most about flying, why they believe they deserve the award and how they would use the award if successful. They will be shortlisted by a panel of judges who will determine which of the candidates show the most promise for their future flying.

The scholarships will be open to women of any age and background, and are for any type of flying. The awards will help scholarship winners in various ways, including gaining their first qualifications, building upon existing qualifications, or working towards a first paid flying job.
