We hope everyone’s year is off to a great start. We have had a lot of questions about the 2 scholarships that we are offering this year so we have included a brief overview below. Each scholarship includes admission to the EAA Advanced Air Academy which covers room and board (lodging and meals), all program materials, and transportation from the Appleton airport (ATW). If you have a student interested in aviation or know one that would benefit from this opportunity please encourage them to visit our website www.cajunsaviationdream.org/scholarships and apply today!
