Air League 2024 flying scholarships

The Air League will open the application window for its 2024 flying and gliding scholarships on 29 January.

Founded in 1909, the Air League is a charity that encourages people to take up careers in aerospace through a vast range of scholarships and outreach programmes.

“Over the past decade scholarships and bursaries worth over £2 million have been allocated to young people across the UK,” said a statement from the Air League. “We look for individuals that have a passion for aviation and aerospace and the determination to succeed.”

Last year, the Air League awarded a total of 93 flying and gliding scholarships. Data from the 2023 scholarships winners shows:

  • 31% were female, far higher than the industry average of 6.5% for pilots
  • 49% under the age of 18
  • 47% were aged between 18-25
  • One in three from an ethnic or minority background
  • 50% of 2023 winners’ parents were not university educated.

“The Air League is proud to be supporting young people from all backgrounds to kickstart a career in aviation,” continued the statement.
