The Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame (MAHOF) has announced that the application process for its 2021 aviation scholarship program “Giving Wings to Dreams” opened October 1, 2020. Applications will be accepted through December 31, 2020.
In partnership with The American Aviation Heritage Foundation, the Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame is committed to doing its respective part to encourage individuals to follow their dreams of flight by offering five scholarships in the amount of $1,500 each to those pursuing a career in aviation-related fields. Detailed instructions on how to apply can be found on the official MAHOF website: mnaviationhalloffame.org.
In addition to these four scholarships, The American Aviation Heritage Foundation awards a scholarship in honor of Faribault, Minnesota native and World War II Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP), Elizabeth Strohfus, titled “Gift of Wings.”
The purpose of the Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame is to establish and maintain an ongoing means of honoring native individuals who have contributed in significant manner to the development, advancement and promotion of aviation in Minnesota, or elsewhere. Or to honor individuals who were not native to Minnesota, but who enhanced the aviation climate in Minnesota in their careers.
The American Aviation Heritage Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in Minnesota to educate the public on the history and heritage of aviation that is uniquely American in nature.
