We are ecstatic about having reached our goals of flying for STEM and of being able to pay forward the generous support of our sponsors through our one-time scholarship. Through the launch-pad of Galactic Unite – Virgin Galactic’s charitable side – applications to apply for the Flying Tigresses one-time scholarship are now open! Spread the word!
The Galactic Unite Flying Tigresses Scholarship will award a one-time award of $2,200 to a collegiate or early-career woman establishing a career in aerospace, and who believes that aviation and being a pilot is key to her career and personal mission. This one-time award for year 2015-2016 may be given to either the university or flight school of the candidate’s choosing. The recipient will also have access to mentoring opportunities and other Galactic Unite educational programs in partnership with Virgin Galactic. If this sounds like you, then apply here before November, 30th 2015. The recipient will be announced on January 11th, 2016.
