The Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of The 99s, Inc. Scholarship Information
In commemoration of their 50th anniversary in 1992, the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of The Ninety-Nines, Inc. established an aviation/aerospace scholarship that is awarded annually in June. As of 2008 our chapter received sufficient donations to allow us to provide two more. These scholarships are traditionally awarded to those females who reside, attend school, or are employed in the Greater Delaware Valley, or who are members of the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of The Ninety-Nines, Inc. The scholarship awards may be used for any aviation purpose, and all qualified applicants will be seriously considered. The Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of The Ninety-Nines, Inc. is part of an organization of licensed women pilots represented in over 40 countries. Our purpose is to engage in educational, charitable, and scientific activities, and to promote aeronautical science. In addition to the scholarships offered by the International Association of Women Pilots, the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter is offering two additional scholarships for 20017, from bequeathments of past chapter members who have passed away: Louise Sacchi, Connie Wolf, and Theresa Dellaquila. Several types of Scholarships are available to women, through The Ninety-Nines, Inc. and other organizations. Our Chapter Scholarships awarded for 2017 were:
- The Louise Sacchi and Connie Wolf Memorial Scholarship managed and awarded by the Eastern PA Chapter – $3,500
