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.

The 2021 EAA Chapter 406 Ray Foundation Aviation Scholarship recipient is Morgan Thomas.


Morgan has had his head in the clouds for as long has he can remember. Our own Doug Haughton will continue to mentor Morgan as he progresses through his private pilot certificate journey. Of course, all chapter members are mentors and the chapter collectively is excited and supportive of Morgan's immersion into the world of aviation.
