Each year, the Australian Junior Gliding Club provides financial sponsorship to several pilots who wish to increase their involvement in gliding but do not have the means to do so. This can be for any gliding related activity – initial training, cross-country coaching, maintenance courses, competition flying, instructor training etc.

To be eligible for the sponsorship you must:

  • Be under 26 years old
  • Be a member of the Australian Junior Gliding Club

To apply, send an email to AJGC@juniorsoaring.com.au containing the following information:

  • Your name, age & gliding club.
  • Your current gliding experience.
  • An outline of what you aim to achieve with the sponsorship.

Historically, the sponsorship has been in the range of $200 – $500, depending on the various circumstances.


James and Laura were both awarded scholarships in 2013 to attend JoeyGlide in December.
