Find the Scholarship For You

Education can be expensive. Scholarships, awards and bursaries can help offset those costs, helping to relieve some of the burden. Whether you are a senior in high school, already a post-secondary aviation student or pursuing your flight training on your own, there are scholarship and bursary opportunities available. Below are links to various scholarships, school awards and financial aid sites.

LIFT Scholarship

The LIFT Scholarship was created by WWFC to assist student pilots. Training to be a pilot is costly and most aviation students are not eligible for OSAP, or other financial support. Since the launch of the WWFC LIFT scholarship program, $44,000 has been presented to students in financial support.

Four $4,000 Scholarships will be awarded in 2023! 

 

2023 Applications open January 10 - February 6, 2023.

Private Air Scholarship

Private Air offers a $500 cash award to a second year graduating Conestoga College aviation student.

Applications open January 2023. Please see your Conestoga College Program Coordinator.
