Through 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.
The program is supported by more than 100 EAA chapters, and supports close to 120 scholars.
Each year, our chapter supports one scholar, between the ages of 16 and 19, in the form of funding and mentorship to help him or her earn their pilot certificate. The first Ray Scholarship for our chapter was awarded to one of our own, Bailey Curtis. Bailey has grown up with us and provides us all with a sense of pride. Congratulations Bailey!
What makes this more impressive, is she has done this while a full time student at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
