Chapter Application Now Open For EAA Ray Aviation Scholarships

All EAA And Divisional Chapters Are Eligible To Apply For A Slot In The Program

The chapter application for the 2020 Ray Aviation Scholarship program is open from now until January 31, 2020. All EAA and divisional chapters are eligible to apply for a slot in the program, securing a $10,000 flight training grant to be awarded to a local youth. If prequalified, chapters can begin nominating scholars in mid-March 2020.

"The reopening of the chapter application not only allows chapters to reapply for a Ray Aviation Scholarship, but allows chapters to reevaluate how they can become an even stronger supporter of their local youth," said David Leiting Jr., EAA chapter field representative II. "One of the most critical components of the chapter application is how the chapter articulates the plan to mentor and support scholars. Chapters should take this opportunity to brainstorm how they will keep scholars energized and engaged all the way throughout flight training."

Chapters that participated in the program in 2019 are also eligible to opt into a 50/50 matching fund. If the chapter commits to $5,000 in funding, the Ray Foundation will match with $5,000, guaranteeing the chapter a scholarship slot. These chapters can begin nominating scholars in mid-January 2020.

Your chapter's scholarship coordinator can apply for a $10,000 flight training grant or opt into the 50/50 match program by completing the 2020 Ray Aviation Scholarship Application.

Join or review the EAA Ray Aviation Scholarship – 2020 and Beyond webinar to learn about changes to the Ray Aviation Scholarship and how the program will take shape moving forward.
