More than 120 scholarships and bursaries are now available from The Air League which has just opened for 2023 applications.
“Our scholarships provide individuals with an opportunity to explore the career pathway options available within aviation, aerospace, and space,” said a statement from The Air League.
“Over the past decade scholarships and bursaries worth over £2 million have been allocated to young people across the UK. We look for individuals that have a passion for aviation and aerospace and the determination to succeed.”
This year sees the introduction of several changes including:
- 3-hour scholarship to compliment the 5- and 12-hour awards to provide an introductory course into aviation and aerospace
- The Prince Philip Flying Scholarship will be awarded to a previous flying scholar who has displayed outstanding potential and allows the individual, who is member of the Air Training Corps and holds a Duke of Edinburgh Award, to achieve their full Private Pilot Licence
- Lowering of the minimum age requirement for some gliding scholarships to 14.
- The Air League’s scholarships are open to anyone that meets the legal requirements listed in the flying application criteria and gliding application criteria. The minimum age for some gliding applicants is 14 and the minimum age for flying applicants is 16. There is no upper age limit across all scholarships.
The Air League has also teamed up with TalentView Aviation to ensure all our scholarship applicants continue their career pathways within aviation and aerospace.
The deadline for applications is 12pm (noon) on Sunday 30 April.
