Scholarships Grants & Aid
The scholarship program encourages young people to compete for scholarships offered by EAA Chapter 292. These opportunities include an all-expense paid trip to The Advanced Air Academy at Oshkosh during AirVenture and other education related monies to help with tuition and other advanced education costs. Application assistance and help working through the application process is also provided for young people who are competing for other scholarships offered by other aviation organizations (AOPA, OPA, 99's, etc.) Scholarship open and close dates are advertised in the Chapter newsletter, "The Tail Dragger", published monthly to Chapter members. All scholarship applications are reviewed using a defined process and review team. Once the application is approved, the applicant will be notified. In addition to scholarships, EAA Chapter 292 assists interested students in applying for interships with airlines and aerospace manufacturers. Benefactors, donors, patrons and supporting individuals work through this program to help match young applicants with opportunities to further their growth in aviation and aerospace fields.
