Hello, DC99s- Happy New Year <almost> We have extended the deadline for submission to the Debi Dreyfuss Dare to be Different (DDDD) award to JAN 31, 2020. This award is managed through our Chapter (on behalf of our current <totally awesome> Governor and Award sponsor, Debi Dreyfuss) and is one of the most unique and interesting funding opportunities out there. The rules are simple:
1. Applicant must be a Mid-Atlantic 99 or student pilot member in current standing (which means join now and apply by 1/31. Note: Student pilots will need a student pilot certificate).
2. Goals must be aviation oriented
3. The award goes to the most unusual application
The award is for $1,500. if fewer than 5 entries are submitted, and $3,000. if 5 or more entries are submitted (this is to be spent however you would like to support your aviation endeavors, and the funds are available quickly, i.e., by late Feb or March 2020).
This is NOT the standard type of application where you write essays, compile letters of support and tally budgets, etc. —this is a chance to be creative in expressing your goals (what you are doing and what you will use the funds for). No rules on format—just ‘Dare to be Different’
Have fun with this, enjoy the lack of structure and let me know if you have any questions.
My very best wishes for 2020,
