EAA?s Ray Aviation Scholarship Program Hits 500 Recipients

Flight Training Milestone Achieved for Association’s Most Flexible Assistance The EAA Ray Aviation Scholarship program has seen its 500th student pilot graduate helped along the way, marking off a significant milestone for the group’s most widely useful scholarship. The Ray Scholarship is funded by the Ray Foundation, but managed by the EAA. That allows it to source candidates through its network of EAA chapters, each with their own culture and community. That’s a fine way to find those who have a passion for flight, but may not be able to swing the expensive costs of training on their own. Through their chapter, suitable youths can see up to $11,000 in assistance to cover their flight training expenses. This year the Ray Foundation has disbursed $1.8 million just for scholarships alone.
