Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers in our annual pancake breakfast and our summertime Young Eagle flights, Chapter 790 is once again able to provide two scholarships in 2020. One is a $1,000 scholarship paid directly to a certified flight training facility, the other is an Aviation Camp in Oshkosh, Wisconsin at the EAA Air Academy in June or July 2020.
Applicants for the $1000 scholarship are to submit a written essay of at least one page, on why they are interested in Aviation and their Aviation objectives. A Chapter 790 Scholarship Committee will review the essays and inform the lucky winner. You must be 16 to 21 years of age and have the consent of a parent or guardian. It must be typed double spaced using 12-point font. Please have at least 3 paragraphs to your paper; introduction, body and conclusion. Use focus and any relevant evidence to support your ideas. Use conventional standard written English. Ideal candidates should be well rounded, have a high school GPA of at least 2.00 on a 4.0 scale, be involved in school and community activities, as well as have a proven interest in aviation.
Please provide 2 references along with your paper.
Applicants for the Aviation Camp ages 12-18, please provide name, address, age, parents or guardians name and phone number, child's interests and the child's reason for wanting to attend the Air Academy. Google “EAA Air Academy” for more information on the EAA Air Academies.
A Chapter 790 Scholarship committee will review the entries and inform the lucky winners. The winners will be awarded their scholarships at the Annual Chapter Banquet in February, 2020
