Richard J. Santori Memorial Scholarship Application $1,000 to a Student Pilot
Richard J. Santori Memorial Scholarship
The Richard J. Santori Memorial Scholarship offers two annual scholarships to members of the North Central Section (“NCS”) under the auspices of The Chicago Area Chapter of The NinetyNines (“CAC”). One scholarship in the amount of $2,000 is to be used to assist a 99 in the completion of an additional pilot certificate or rating. Applicants must be a current pilot with the appropriate medical certificate and must be approaching the flight time requirement for the desired rating or certificate.
The other scholarship offers $1,000 to assist a Student Pilot Member toward completion of an initial pilot certificate in any aircraft. Applicants must have soloed, and, if required for the pilot certificate sought, must have a current medical certificate and must have passed the written exam. Applicants must be a current member of The 99s, the NCS and their chapter in good standing. Applicants must submit three (3) copies of each: the completed and signed application including the form; attached essay; letter of recommendation from their chapter chair; proof of certificates and ratings held; medical certificate; proof of date and score of knowledge tests taken; copy of last page(s) of logbook showing current hours flown; and a letter of reference from someone outside of the aviation community who is not a relative. These documents must be mailed to the address on the application form to be postmarked no later than the date indicated on the form.
Funds will be paid from receipts which document the training. Receipts must be signed by both the student and instructor and include copies of the logbook if applicable. Funds are to be used within two years of the award date. Prior applicants and recipients may reapply in future years. The winning candidate and all candidates who did not qualify will be notified within one month after the receipt deadline.
