WAI Mile High Chapter Empowerment Scholarship

Scholarship Name:

WAI Mile High Chapter Empowerment Scholarship


One $4,000 non-cash scholarship will be awarded for Jeppesen commercial aviation dispatch training. Scholarship includes tuition, books, and supplies, and does not include pre-exam books or FAA examination fees of $500. Preference given to Colorado resident, but all applicants will be considered based upon character, need, community involvement, and accomplishments.

This will prepare applicants to take the comprehensive FAA written, oral, and practical exams leading to issuance of the aircraft dispatcher certificate. The FAA aircraft dispatcher written exam is the same as the FAA airline transport pilot (ATP) exam, so this course provides the ATP body of knowledge, plus flight planning and practical dispatching skills—applicable to many aviation careers. This is not an ATP course.

Jeppesen graduates can receive transfer credit toward a bachelor’s of science degree at the Metropolitan State College of Denver, Honolulu Community College, and other worldwide partner universities.

Training to be held at Jeppesen’s Corporate World Headquarters in Denver, Colorado. Travel and lodging expenses not included in scholarship. Scholarship must be used within one year of receiving the award.


Students can be full or part time, or graduated. Applicants must be a member of Women in Aviation International by November 1, 2016, and may apply for no more than two scholarships. Internships are not included in the two per member scholarship limit.



Application Submission Process and Completion Date:

Applications are due in by mid November in order to be considered for the following year, awarded at the annual Women in Aviation Conference.

Selection Process:

All scholarships, unless otherwise noted, will be awarded during the Annual International Women in Aviation Conference.
