Welcome to the AAUW Honolulu (HI) Branch

Want a Career as a Pilot? Take Off with a Tweet Coleman Aviation Scholarship!

Are you seeking your Federal Aviation Administration Pilot Certificate? Do you have a degree (graduate or undergraduate)? Are you interested in becoming a commercial pilot and working for an airline?

Apply for a Tweet Coleman Aviation Scholarship!

Tweet Coleman is one of the first women to make piloting an airplane her profession. She made history as part of the first all-female flight crew to fly a Boeing 727. She’s written an autobiography about her career in aviation, Take Your Life Off Autopilot: Live with Purpose, Passion, and Power, and is now a senior representative for the FAA.

AAUW Honolulu is honored to have Tweet as a member, and she’s graciously endowed us with the Tweet Coleman Aviation Scholarship, offered yearly, for women seeking to earn a FAA Pilot Certificate.

AAUW’s Start Smart and Work Smart programs are designed to empower women with the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate their salary and benefits packages. By learning strategies and practicing effective language, participants gain valuable skills they can use throughout their lives — well beyond their next negotiation.
