The RIPA Scholarship Story
In 1996 at a monthly dinner meeting, the Rhode Island Pilots Association members heard about a deserving young student pilot who was struggling financially to finish his training. It was unanimously voted to grant him $500 so he could earn his Certificate. It was then proposed that the Association become more active in encouraging future aviators and students wanting to enter an aviation-related career. The Rhode Island Pilots Association Scholarship Fund was established; funded mainly by a “Twenty Week Club” and member donations. Scholarships have been awarded each year since to qualified candidates wishing to pursue pilot flight training, or a scholarship committee-approved aviation-related educational program.

If YOU would like to donate to the Rhode Island Pilots Association Scholarship Fund, we encourage you to contact us by email, or to approach a RIPA Board member at the next RIPA event. If you know of a deserving potential candidate, refer them to this web site, or to any Rhode Island flight training school, or to their school guidance counselor.
