Minden Soaring Club to Offer Youth Scholarships

The Minden Soaring Club (MSC) has announced that it will again be offering youth scholarships to encourage youths between the ages of 14 and 21 to help finance flight and ground instruction in preparation for obtaining a private glider rating.

This year, the MSC will offer seven (7) scholarships in the amount of $1000 each to youths who are interested in learning to fly gliders or who have already begun their training and need additional monetary assistance. The scholarships will be awarded by the MSC Board of Trustees and the scholarship award will be deposited at a training facility of the winner’s choice. The deadline for submission of applications is March 7, 2014 and winners will be announced by April 1, 2014.

The MSC is a non-profit 5-1(c)(3) corporation which was organized to promote soaring in the region by encouraging education to improve pilot safety and proficiency through training and education. Donations for the scholarship fund are gratefully accepted.

For more information and a copy of the application, please go to the MSC website or SoaringNV, or contact club President Laurie Harden at (775) 782-9595.
