The deadline to submit your chapter’s application to participate in the Ray Aviation Scholarship program during 2019, and have the ability to nominate a deserving scholar, is February 11 at 11:59 p.m. CST.
Chapters will be notified of their approval status by the first week of March 2019. At this point, approved chapters will be able to nominate a youth in their area for a $10,000 flight training scholarship.
About the Program:
The Ray Aviation Scholarship Fund is a scholarship program that is supported by the Ray Foundation, managed by EAA, and administered through the EAA Chapter network. Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA will provide up to $10,000 to deserving youths for their flight training expenses, totaling nearly $1,000,000 in scholarships annually.
The EAA Chapter network will play a critical role in the success of this program, as chapters are tasked with identifying and recommending local youth to apply for this scholarship. The chapter will also be tasked with mentoring and supporting the scholarship recipient throughout their flight-training journey.
