EAA Chapter 579

Sharing the Magic of Aviation - Aurora Municipal Airport (KARR) Aurora, IL

Ray Aviation Scholarship

EAA Ray Aviation ScholarshipThrough 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.  Scholars are between the ages of 16 and 19.

The program is supported by more than 100 EAA chapters and supports close to 120 scholars.  

Chapter 579 now falls into the 50/50 scholarship award program.  This means the Chapter provides 50% of the total scholarship funds.  Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor a scholar at this time.
