Flight training scholarships from the EAA Aviation Foundation are now accepting applications through November 1, 2019. Applications are open to all ages, for any flight school in the U.S., and any rating or pilot certificate. Applicants need not be an EAA member.
More information on the scholarship opportunities and application guidelines are available at EAA.org/scholarships. These are among the numerous scholarships offered through the EAA Aviation Foundation, as well as other programs such as post-secondary education scholarships and the Ray Aviation Scholarships that support flight training candidates through EAA chapters.
“Aviation-minded individuals and organizations see flight training scholarships as a way to give back to the world of flight by supporting those who are pursuing their dreams,” said Ken Strmiska, the EAA Aviation Foundation’s vice president for philanthropy and donor stewardship. “As we see a growing number of success stories associated with these scholarships, we invite others to join us in building the next generation of aviators.”
Scholarships are required to be used within one year of the award date. The minimum award is $5,000.
Individuals and organizations interested in joining the roster of EAA Aviation Foundation scholarship benefactors and supporters are invited to contact Strmiska at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-426-5901.
