Minden Soaring Club offering scholarships to young & aspiring glider pilots

The Minden Soaring Club is offering scholarships to anyone between ages 14 and 21 to help finance flight and ground instruction in preparation for obtaining a private glider rating.

This year, the club is offering scholarships of up to $3,000 to youths who are interested in learning to fly gliders or who have already begun their training and need additional monetary assistance. The scholarships will be awarded by the Minden Soaring Club Board of Trustees and the scholarship award will be deposited at a training facility of the winner’s choice.

The deadline for submitting applications is Feb. 29. Winners will be announced by March 19. For more information and an application, go to http://www.mindensoaringclub.com or http://www.soaringnv.com.

The MSC is a nonprofit organized to promote soaring in the region by encouraging education to improve pilot safety and proficiency through training and education. Donations for the scholarship fund are accepted.
