The purpose of the Women’s Soaring Pilots Association is to encourage women to fly gliders. One way we do this is through our scholarship program. Applicants are required to be members of WSPA and, if living in the U.S., members of SSA. Scholarships are offered to women of all skill levels, from beginning students to advanced licensed pilots. Persons interested in applying for a scholarship should review the list below and select the scholarship that best meets their needs. Applicants may submit only one application per year. Funds must be used within 18 months of the scholarship award. Most scholarships can be used at any club or commercial operation.
Scholarship Deadline: March 15
Karl Striedieck, a well-known record, and competition soaring pilot plus a longtime Associate Life Member of WSPA, has recently donated $10,000 to WSPA. The money will be used to establish a Scholarship Endowment. The endowment’s purpose will be to ensure the future financial security of the WSPA Scholarship Program. We are pleased to rename our competition scholarship The Karl Striedieck Competition Scholarship.
