Gloria Heath Scholarship

The Flight Safety Foundation Gloria Heath scholarship program is named after a woman who played a critical leadership role in the early days of the Foundation. She was an aviator who served in the U.S. Women Airforce Service Pilots during World War II. She was named one of the 100 most influential women in aviation by Women in Aviation International and was a recipient of numerous awards, including the Amelia Earhart Award and the Laura Taber Barbour Air Safety Award. 

The Gloria Heath scholarship will recognize a female student’s commitment to a career in aviation, scholastic excellence indicative of success in the future, a strong interest in and aptitude for aviation and a demonstration of strong character, professionalism, and integrity.
