YesGirlsGlide campaign is one of the projects funded by Sports & Recreation Victoria. Women currently represent only a small fraction of gliding membership and this project is aimed at increasing participation in our sport by women. Gliding currently attracts mainly males, with about 93% male participation in Victoria and nationally. The ‘Victoria’s Soaring Women’ is aligned with the Gliding Federation of Australia‘s “Soaring to the Future“ initiative and aims to increase the proportion of women taking part in gliding to 4% of total membership over the next four years.

Gliding is a very sociable, challenging and fun adventure sport. Each year, female glider pilots from all over Australia, endeavour to meet up at a fellow club. 


In line with our mission, the Victorian Soaring Association (VSA) can offer scholarships to encourage all Victorian women and girls to take up or continue their gliding experience, either as a pathway to a career in aviation or for enjoyment of a unique sport.

This year, the VSA will provide 4 scholarships. We have introduced a President’s scholarship valued at $1500 and three general scholarships valued at $1000 each to be awarded annually. The awarding of the scholarships will be based on the current VSA Gliding Vic/Tas YesGirlsGlide scholarship criteria already in place.

Applications are now open for the 2022 VSA YesGirlsGlide Gliding Scholarships. Closing date is 30th June 2022. You must be a member of the Gliding Federation of Australia to participate.
