Sample Recommendation Letter 2

The South Pole Chapter received two applications for an AE scholarship from our members this year. Both were outstanding candidates, active members in the Chapter with demonstrated financial need. Our chapter has 42 members as of Jan. 11, 2019, and our ratio is 1.68. The Chapter officers unanimously agreed to recommend Ms. Joe Pilot as an additional primary candidate for an AE scholarship in support of her ________ degree.
We have known Ms. Joe Pilot since she started working on her private pilot certificate in 2016, and she has been an involved member of the Chapter participating in fly-outs and in our out-reach activities. She recently organized a tower tour at KLNS for the group as part of the PPLI program and has promoted the Ninety-Nines to other female flyers at _____ airport increasing awareness, our visibility and our Chapter numbers. Her intense, personal commitment is exemplified in her teaching. We have an elder female student at the school who had around 150 hours and still had not soloed. This person had been passed from CFI to CFI until Ms. Joe Pilot made it a personal mission to bring the competency level of this student to the point of soloing– which was a great accomplishment for all. We believe thatMs. Joe Pilot is an exceptionally talented young lady, extremely motivated and exactly who the 99s should support. We are encouraging her to take an Officer position within the Chapter.
Ms. Joe Pilot has been on the fast-track in getting her aviation credentials. In a little over two years, she has obtained all her credential up to the MEI. She has decided to complement and broaden her aviation expertise by working towards an __________ Degree in Aviation. She has been paying for her flight training herself, and as might be expected, her savings are depleted. It is commendable that she has had the discipline and motivation to save and pay for her training up to this point. While she has some income as a part-time CFI (since Sept 2017) and a non-salaried position at the ______ Embassy, the pay is meager and barely covers her living (in group student housing) and transportation expenses. Her financial need is clear and immediate: she simply will not be able to progress in her education, without interruption, unless some assistance is provided. Her goal is realistic: she has established a relationship with the Aviator College of Aeronautical Science and Technology and has the basic drive and intelligence to complete the course.
Ms. Joe Pilot is a well-balanced, mature, extraordinarily talented young lady who truly needs this financial assistance to achieve her goals. The funding amount requested is reasonable and in-line with the costs in this type of education. We have every confidence that Ms. Joe Pilot will complete her degree and will be an asset to the 99s, and to women in aviation, in general.
