Martha King Scholarship


King Scholarship Award Winner 2019 – Melissa Martin

It’s scholarship season!  The Women In Aviation, International (WAI) has posted this month the advertisement for the Martha King Scholarship for Certified Flight Instructor, a $5000 value for one qualified winner.

Last year’s award winner, Capt Melissa Martin, is currently getting her CFI certificate.  Martin, a C-130 pilot in the Montana Air National Guard, has served in multiple crew positions and applied for the scholarship last year.  She is currently flying under “basicmed” due to discovery and treatment for breast cancer – this scholarship broadens her career options as she faces multiple medical reviews in the ANG.


The basic requirements for the scholarship are a private pilot’s license, a WAI membership and a desire to do great things with it!

Good luck to all who apply!
