Grant Applications Being Acceptanced!
Congratulations to the 2017 Primary Grant Awardee
The ChicagoLand Glider Council was established in 1938 and strives to grow and enhance soaring in many different ways. We all know that the soaring youth members are the key to attaining these goals. Therefore, each year since 1997 the Council's membership has awarded grants to deserving youth members. These grants are intended to help the youths of our Chicago area soaring organizations to further their training, to attain certifications, and help pay for their continuing education in soaring. Prior grant awardees have gone on to becoming successful military and commercial aviators, while always keeping soaring close to their heart.
The current year's grant application is available here.
The deadline for grant applications is March 31st of the grant year.
