We have some big news to share with our Plane Faith friends today. After much careful consideration and prayer (and many, many requests), we have decided to expand our debt alleviation program by offering scholarships for prospective missionary pilots in addition to our existing Takeoff Grants.
Although the Takeoff Grants will continue to be our primary approach to alleviating debt for missionary pilots, we have determined that scholarships will allow us to help even more prospective missionary pilots. These scholarships will also enable us to create an applicant pipeline for our Takeoff Grant program.
The Takeoff Scholarships will be $2,000 a year per recipient and will be awarded to cover expenses for a typical two-term school year (i.e., Fall 2023 – Spring 2024). We will make $1,000 payments directly to the flight school/college/university each term.
However, since we are announcing and launching the scholarship program in the middle of Fall 2022, we are currently taking applications for $1,000 scholarships for Spring 2023. If you are interested in applying for a Takeoff Scholarship, please visit this page for more information and to begin the application process. Or, if you know someone who could benefit from our scholarship program, please share this announcement with them. We’d love to get their application!
Thank you so much for your ongoing support of Plane Faith! We are so very grateful and look forward to seeing how God will use these scholarships to reach remote and isolated people with the good news about Jesus.
