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.

May 27, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Across the country, both private and public institutions of higher education have announced that they will be test-optional for students applying to enter school in the fall of 2021. This policy, instituted as a response to coronavirus cancellations of standardized testing dates, comes with the caveat that it would only exist during next year’s round of admissions. But the University of California system has gone in an entirely different direction by announcing that will no longer require the SAT or ACT for all California state applicants. [...]
