  • Scholarship Description
  • The Figure 1 Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to aviation scholarships. We enable our youth to pursue an aviation career by providing the means for flight training. The foundation grants aviation scholarships for determined individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to pursue their dreams in aviation.

    Scholarships offered:
    1. Fixed wing private pilot license: We will make you a pilot. No matter your level of experience, we will provide funding through the private pilot check-ride. All materials and test expenses necessary for the license are covered in this program. We will provide up to $12,600.00 in total funding.

    2. Tail-wheel endorsement: The Figure 1 Foundation strongly promotes becoming a tail-wheel pilot. The tail-wheel rating is not only a valuable skill, but also a great experience for college or job placement. The applicant must have a Private Pilot License or higher accreditation to apply. We will provide up to $1,750.00 in total funding.

    3. Upset recovery/spin training and introduction to aerobatics: This program provides you with a FAA spin endorsement. You will obtain the experience needed for correct and precise actions responding to in-flight emergencies and unusual attitude recovery. You will also obtain the ability to perform an aerobatic sequence and achieve an IAC Smooth Award. The applicant must have a Private Pilot License or higher accreditation to apply. We will provide up to $3,800 in total funding.

    4. Aerobatic judge certification: We will make you a certified aerobatic judge. The certification program covers the cost of a weekend judges school, travel cost to and from the aerobatic contest that you earn your required judges assisting, and regional judges exam cost. No prior flight experience needed. We will provide up to $1,100.00 in total funding.
