The David Wilson Memorial Scholarship was formally launched at the 75th Anniversary and Awards Dinner in 2019.
Funding is available to support attendance at official coaching events or competitions e.g. Horsham Week, Horsham Coaching Week, Mt Beauty Alpine Course, JoeyGlide, other cross-country courses, or other state or national competitions. This might be for glider hire, cost of tows, accommodation.
The scholarship is open to two types of applicants from the Melbourne Gliding Club:
1) Youth members (26 and under); and
2) Recently solo pilots (those within two years of first solo).
If you meet our applicant criteria, and have a gliding goal in mind for this season for which you need financial support, please email a short statement to the Committee (email@example.com).
