More Than $135,000 In Aviation Scholarships Now Available From EAA

May Be Applied To Flight Training, College Studies, Air Academy Camps

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.

“As with many aspects of higher education, finding the funding to make aviation dreams come true can be a challenge,” said Bret Steffen, EAA’s director of education. “EAA is fortunate to have dozens of members and benefactors who want to give back to the world of flight through our scholarships. As with many scholarships nationwide, we encourage all qualified applicants, who in turn help us encourage more support from the aviation world. We want to ensure that young people who want to pursue flight get the support they need to make it happen.”

While many of the awards have varying deadline dates, most of the college scholarships must receive applications by January 31, 2018.
