2019 Scholarships Due November 12, 2019!

It is SCHOLARSHIP season!  This year we are offering a total of $3000 in two substantial awards:

  • $1500 towards flying or a rating
  • $1500 towards educational expenses

Did you know that Chicago’s Leading Edge has been giving out scholarships exclusively to our members since 2012?  And in that time we have awarded nearly $16,000 to local members!  Because we offer our scholarships only to CLE members in good standing, you are eligible to apply for three from Women in Aviation International-Scholarships (and win one) AND apply for both of ours (and win one)! The deadlines are the same, November 12th, see the attached applications and contact us with questions.
