The Ray Foundation, Inc. has awarded the UND Aerospace Foundation with $300,000 (USD) to be used for scholarships to help 25 U.S. Military Veterans earn their Private Pilot License (PPL). Training will take place at the UND Phoenix Flight Training Center (UND Phoenix), Arizona, beginning February 2022.

The scholarships are designed to cover nearly the entire cost of obtaining a Private Pilot certificate at the UND Aerospace Phoenix Flight Training Center (roughly 80%). After completion of the Private Pilot course, recipients will be eligible to use GI Bill education benefits to continue their studies and pursue advanced flight training certifications, through and including their Certified Flight Instructor rating.

The UND Phoenix Flight Training Center is an FAA Certified Part 141 Flight School located at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.  UND Phoenix is approved to train veterans and their eligible dependents using VA education benefits in the state of Arizona, preparing them for a career in aviation. In partnership with Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC), the UND Phoenix Flight Training Center has offered an Associate degree in Applied Science (AAS) in Airway Science Technology for 26 years.
