RA-Aus Scholarship Program Update

2020 – 2021 RAAus Scholarship Program
For many years the GYFTS Scholarship program has provided seed funding to hundreds of young aviators and it is something RAAus is very proud of. Ordinarily in April each year we call for applications for the following financial year. Given the current circumstances and government health advice and regulations, RAAus will be deferring the call for applications until such time as we have certainty around flight training arrangements after June this year.

Furthermore we are currently exploring additional ways we may be able to support budding aviators and our flight training school network. As we make decisions in this space we will be sure to share them with our members through our E-News and social media channels.

2019 – 2020 Scholarship winners
We understand that scholarship winners from last year may have found themselves in a position where they are unable to complete the training they had planned for the remainder of the financial year. RAAus is pleased to extend the period of time for finalising a 2019 – 2020 scholarship. Any member who was awarded a scholarship in June 2019 now has until 30 June 2021 to use the funds allocated as part of this scholarship. You do not need to apply to RAAus for an extension, we will automatically extend the life of your scholarship for you.
