Each year Chapter 526 provides scholarships for one or more Auburn-area Young Eagles to attend a session of the EAA Air Academy, a fun-filled live-in summer camp experience held on the grounds of the EAA Aviation Museum, Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
In partnership with the Auburn Aviation Association, Chapter 526 will send two teenagers to 2023 Air Academy sessions:
One applicant who will be age 14 or 15 as of June 25, 2023, will receive full tuition and up to $600 in air fare reimbursement to attend the June 25 - 30, 2023, session of EAA Basic Air Academy.
