We are immensely thankful to the EAA chapter members who are supporting these Ray Scholars and helping them achieve their dreams of learning to fly. Keep up the great work!

The EAA Ray Aviation Scholarship Fund is a scholarship program that is supported by the Ray Foundation, managed by EAA, and administered through the EAA chapter network. Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA provides up to $10,000 to deserving youths to cover their flight training expenses and help them earn their pilot certificates.

At AirVenture 2021, it was announced that in 2022 the Ray Foundation will increase its scholarship fund to $1,550,000. This will allow more EAA chapters to participate in the program and give more young people the opportunity to learn to fly!
