The 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 will provide up to $10,000 to deserving youths for their flight training expenses, totaling $1,000,000 in scholarships annually.
The EAA Chapter network will play a critical role in the success of this program, as chapters are tasked with identifying and recommending local youth to apply for this scholarship. The chapter will also be tasked with mentoring and supporting the scholarship recipient throughout their flight-training journey.
Due to the critical nature of the local chapter to the success of this program, chapters interested in participating in the program must be prequalified by EAA through an application process. Once selected as a Ray Aviation Scholarship Fund approved chapter, the chapter can recommend a deserving candidate(s).
The application to participate as a chapter in the Ray Aviation Scholarship program in 2019 has closed. The application may reopen, should additional scholarship funds be available. The 2020 chapter application will open in November of 2019.
