I am applying for this scholarship because I am only 25 hours away from my IFR and Commericial but have lost my job as a result of this pandemic and gone through my savings to get this far. If I dont find funding I will not be able to finish what Ive worked hard for. I'm 27 and have earned my B.S. in computer science and my private pilot's license and did this while helping support my disabled mother and twin brother (who recently passed). I am not a quitter but am challenged financially right now. I do not normally accept charity but I really want this. If anyone out there reads this, please consider donating directly to my flight school (Alpine Aviation in Grass Valley, CA) for my (Michael Reisenweber's) account. Im about $7500 short.

While we hope that our lives will return to normal when this crisis is over, it is hard to imagine that higher education will ever be the same. [...]

Scholarship Deadlines Extended Due to COVID-19

April 2, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Just as schools have closed their doors due to coronavirus, charities and non-profit organizations have had to shutter down. While they might suspend board meetings, community fundraisers or award ceremonies, chances are they haven't shut down their scholarship offerings - in fact, many non-profits have extended their scholarship application windows from mid- or late March into April, May or even June. If you've been applying for scholarships this spring and missed out on some March or early April deadlines, check your account - you may find that some scholarships have had their due dates pushed back, giving you more time to submit an application.
