2020 Air Academy Scholarship Applications Closed
Do you know a young person who loves aviation as much as you do? Let them know about the EAA Air Academy and our scholarship to attend!
Chapter 846 is offering a full scholarship to attend the annual EAA Air Academy in Oshkosh, WI, in July, 2020 to an area youth who has an interest in aviation. The Air Academy is a fun-filled aviation camp experience for youth ages 16-18. Since 1984, experienced instructors and dedicated staff have shared their knowledge and lore of aviation through hands-on workshop, classroom, and outdoor experiences.
The scholarship will cover the entire cost of the camp as charged by EAA, which includes room and board. The recipient of the scholarship will need to provide his/her own transportation to and from Oshkosh. More information about the Advanced Air Academy can be found here. The session 1 camp runs from July 14 thru 22, 2020. Do not apply on-line. The application can be found here. The completed application and letters of reference must be sent to Art Hernandez, Scholarship Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 8, 2020.
Unfortunately, due to the current health crisis, this year's Air Academy Camp has been cancelled. From the EAA website:
April 2, 2020 - As the current situation surrounding COVID-19 has made it much more difficult to secure all the necessary logistics needed for a successful camp experience, EAA has decided to cancel the 2020 Air Academy sessions that traditionally begin in mid-June and continue through early August. While this was an enormously difficult decision and is a disappointment to us all, the health and safety or our campers and a fulfilling camp experience were our priorities for the young people involved.
Chapter 846 is disappointed to not be able to sponsor a camper for 2020, but looks forward to resuming the program for 2021. Please be watching here for more details.
