You can ignite the future of a student by sponsoring them to learn to fly in Malawi with Eastrise Aviation. All students sponsored through Eastrise will receive free ground school (both online and on-campus) as well as free access to the mock exams site and Flytex Pilot Exams Android app. You will thus as a sponsor only pay for flight training. We will also match the cost of student supplies (books, flight computer, headset, uniform etc.) for your sponsored student. This means that you will only pay half the cost for these expenses and the other half will be borne by Eastrise Aviation. Sponsorship terms and conditions are available on this link (link opens in new tab).
Below are profiles of students who have been shortlisted for sponsorship. Please note that profiles of students who have been matched to a sponsor will be removed from this page. The sponsor can still access the learner profile and training records through a private link sent to them after successfully matching them with their sponsored student.
Background: All students recommended for sponsorship are from needy communities most of which are in rural areas of Malawi. Eastrise Aviation proactively reaches out to them through career visits at rural primary and secondary schools. A few of them would also have applied online or through the post. All scholarship recipients are bonafide citizens of Malawi who hold a valid citizen identification card. No other identification is accepted. There are no restrictions on race, district of origin or tribe. We do not apply quotas.
Age and Gender: A prospective scholarship recipient will be between 16 and 25 years of age. We may in exceptional cases award a scholarship to an applicant outside this age bracket but shall not exceed 40 years of age.
