Aviation is not an inexpensive hobby. Just learning to fly is a costly proposition, but there are resources to help. Here are some of the places to look for scholarships toward your aviation instruction.
Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA provides up to $10,000 to deserving youth for their flight training expenses, totaling $1.2 million in scholarships annually.
EAA Aviation Scholarships
EAA invites those who are interested in pursuing flight or a career in aviation or aviation related/STEM fields. We encourage individuals who are well-rounded, involved in their school or community, and interested in the world of aviation to apply for an EAA Scholarship.
Chapter 846 offers a full scholarship to an area youth who has an interest in aviation. This scholarship entitles the recipient to attend the annual EAA Air Academy Camp in Oshkosh, WI, each year in July. The application process is closed for the 2020 scholarship.
Other Aviation Scholarships
The purpose of our Flight Scholarship Program is to award scholarships for flight training to young adults who display the aptitude, talent, drive and desire to learn to fly, and to help promote the value of General Aviation in the local East Central Ohio region.
AOPA members are invited to apply for primary and advanced flight training scholarships, made possible through donations to the AOPA Foundation. Last year, 123 scholarships totaling more than $1 million were awarded.
