Ray Aviation Scholarship

EAA Ray Aviation Scholarship

The EAA Ray Aviation Scholarship is a scholarship program that is funded by the Ray Foundation, managed by EAA, and administered through the EAA Chapter network. Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA provides up to $11,000 to deserving youths to help cover their flight training expenses, totaling $1,800,000 in annual scholarship funding.

EAA chapters apply for a scholarship, and if approved, the chapter then awards the scholarship to a youth or young adult to help them become a pilot. In addition to scholarship funding, the chapter also helps mentor the scholar and supports them on their path to becoming a licensed pilot.

This scholarship is available for candidates 16-19 years old who are pursuing a Private Pilot or Sport Pilot certificate, and for candidates 15-19 years old who are pursuing a Glider Pilot certificate.

In 2022 we broke new ground with our first female scholar, Elyssa Reiter.  Elyssa is currently attending Ground School on Wednesdays at Stratford Air Services while continuing her flight training on weekends.  Recent air-work included power on, power off stall recovery and spin recovery in a Cessna 150.         

Our 2021 scholar, Philip Starczewski, advises that he is busy cramming for his exam as he has completed his dual instruction and soloed!!  Next steps are to write the exam and pass his checkride.  Way to go Philip! 

Our first successful candidate in 2020 was Michal Mastej who has now received his Private Pilot License!! - congratulations Michal
