Apply Soon: EAA Aviation Scholarships Now Available for Flight Training, College Studies, Air Academy Camps
November 28, 2017
More than $135,000 in financial aid opportunities for flight training, college aviation studies, and EAA residence camps are now open for applications through the Experimental Aircraft Association’s scholarship programs. Many of the scholarships, especially those for college studies, have a deadline of January 31, 2018.
EAA scholarships are supported by aviation-minded donors who are helping to build the next generation of flight. The awards vary from $500 grants to four-year, renewable $10,000 college scholarships for those interested in pursuing more within aviation. Categories include flight training scholarships, where aid is applied directly to instruction and flight time required to become a pilot; college scholarships that cover a wide range of aviation-related college and university studies; internships for positions that introduce young people to the aviation business world; and “camperships” that provide financial support for young people age 12-18 who want to attend the EAA Air Academy each summer.
While many of the awards have varying deadline dates, most of the college scholarships must receive applications by January 31, 2018. More information on all of EAA’s scholarship and financial support programs is available at www.EAA.org/scholarships.
