May 29, 2014 - GoPro, maker of the popular high-definition video cameras that help capture and share one’s most meaningful experiences, has announced the Go Fly $7,500 flight training scholarship that will be awarded at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014.
GoPro encourages anyone 16 years of age and older to apply by submitting a video on why you want to “Go Fly.” Here’s an example.
The winner will also receive a GoPro Aviators camera package and a one-year EAA membership. EAA will award the scholarships in $2,500 increments to the winner and a flight school. The winner will be expected to engage with EAA and GoPro via Facebook and Twitter and record his or her flight training experiences with the new GoPro equipment quarterly or at each flight training milestone, such as the first solo. (The student’s flight instructor/flight school should be comfortable with filming parts of flight training.)
To apply, please e-mail your video as an attached .mov or .mp4 file to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate the name of the scholarship, “Go Fly,” as the subject line. Include name, address, date of birth, and EAA member number (if applicable). Winners will be announced at AirVenture 2014. Application deadline is July 15, 2014.
