The scholarship is offered to any current Northern California (Greater Sacramento and Bay Areas) student attending an accredited and FAA approved school. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen and currently enrolled in an aviation pilot training program.

The scholarship funds are applied directly as needed for the final testing. These funds can be used for training materials or testing fees for the Private Pilot written, oral and practical.
