Scholarship Details


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 and apply today!

The EAA Advanced Air Academy provides an atmosphere for students to become totally immersed in the world of flight. It provides "in-the-air" and "on-the-ground" hands-on activities. The Academy also includes full participation (access to forums, flightline and all associated activities) in EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Visit for AirVenture details.
