EAA106 Youth Scholarship - Requirements

EAA Chapter 106's Youth Scholarship

NOTE:   ACTIONS, not just dreams ...     
When we say we're looking for a DEMONSTRATED AVIATION PASSION, we want to know what ACTIONS an applicant has taken about their professed passion, not just dreams. To that end, we are seeking youth who are so passionate about aviation that you not only are currently taking flight lessons, but are working to pay for some or all of the cost of your flight lessons.
WHY do we ask that youth work to pay for some of their flight lessons? Because all youth seem passionate when their parents pay for all their flight lessons - flying IS, after all, FUN!  But we're looking for just a very few youth who are so extraordinarily aviation-passionate that they work to pay for extra flight lessons between any the parents can afford to help pay.

Applicants: You MUST:

#1 - You MUST be earning some of your own flight training money
#2 - You MUST be actively taking flight training (within last 6 months)
#3 - You MUST be age 16-18 at the end of JULY (or w/i a couple weeks)
