Eaa Chapter 1414 has been selected to administer one of the Ray Scholarships this year.
It is a $10,000 dollar scholarship .
If you know a young person 16 to 19 please encourage them to apply for it.
They should write an essay about their goals in aviation, They should include ideas that they have for participating in activities in our Chapter.
Do to recent events with the Covid19 virus, the deadline for submitting an essay has been extended until April 30th 2020. The essay should be emailed to EAA1414RayScholarship@gmail.com
The chapter will assemble a selection committee to review the essays. After reviewing them the committee will invite the finalists to come in for an interview. I expect the interview to happen during the last week of April. The committees decision is then submitted to EAA headquarters for their final approval. Once approved by headquarters, we will announce the recipient at the next Chapter meeting.
If you would like to be on the selection committee we are looking for five current chapter 1414 members to volunteer. Please let Sean Soar know and or email your interest to EAA1414RayScholaship@gmail.com and I will get that info to Sean.
Looking forward to seeing this help a young person reach for their goals
