Chapter 33 Scholarships
Our Chapter periodically offers opportunities for area young aviation enthusiasts (12-18 years of age) to participate in EAA's Air Academy (Oshkosh, Wisconsin). Three camp levels are available - Young Eagles Camp (12-13 yrs), Basic Camp (14-15 yrs), and Advanced Camp (16-18 yrs). Campers learn fundamentals of flight, participate in a variety of hands-on activities, tour the EAA museum campus, and experience the thrill of flight.
Ray Aviation Scholarship
Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA provides up to $10,000 to deserving youths for their flight training expenses, totaling nearly $1,200,000 in scholarships annually.
The program is supported by more than 100 EAA chapters, and supports close to 120 scholars.
Each year, our Chapter participates in the Ray Aviation Scholarship competition and partners in supporting one scholar. For powered flight training, scholars must be between the ages of 16 and 19; for gliders, 15 years of age. Scholarship winners receive funding and mentorship to help him or her earn a pilot certificate.
