National Gay Pilots Association

The National Gay Pilots Association acts as a umbrella for six $5,000 scholarships funded by American, Delta, and United Airlines to meet their goals for diversity and inclusion. Applicants must hold at least a private pilot certificate. The scholarships can be used for advanced flight training and/or flight education at an accredited institution or program. The Association says that the funds are not awarded on the basis of sexual orientation, but “the applicant should provide evidence of his or her contribution to the LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender] community.”

Heather Goss is the Departments Editor at Air & Space.
