Remington Viney Memorial Scholarship

Remington Viney was a determined young woman who did not let being a minority in her field slow her down. By the time she was 26, she was a certified flight instructor-instrument, multi-engine commercial pilot, Staff Sergeant in the Wisconsin Air National Guard, certified drone pilot, and held a tail-wheel endorsement. She was involved in numerous volunteer organizations and loved to mentor people. She embodied all that is great about aviation and our local aviation community.

Remington took her final flight in February 2021. We will award a recurring scholarship to honor Remington, her life, and keep her memory alive. The ideal candidate would possess many of the characteristics and qualities that Remington exhibited in her life.

A scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded to a female Wisconsin resident age 16 or older, at the time of acceptance, in pursuit of any pilot rating or license. The final scholarship award will be paid directly to a flight school in south-central Wisconsin, pending valid student pilot and medical certificates, if applicable. Upon receipt of the scholarship, the recipient must become a member of Women in Aviation International and the Four Lakes Chapter, if not already a member. The recipient will be assigned a mentor from the Four Lakes Chapter to help navigate and encourage her during training. The scholarship recipient should plan to complete her training by August 31st, 2025.

The 2024 scholarship winner will be announced on July 24 at this year's EAA AirVenture! The winning candidate must be able to attend the WomenVenture event.
