The money is to be used on flying activities, not for membership dues, with the goal of maximizing flying training. The number of bursaries and $ amounts will vary each year depending on funds available, and will be awarded by June 1.
To apply for the bursary program, current youth members at SOSA should submit a written request to the SOSA Board by end of April each year. If bursaries are still available after that, applications can be submitted by end of June.

Once reviewed and approved by SOSA board of directors, the applications are submitted for SAC Youth Bursary Program review.
