Each year Chapter 526 provides a full scholarship 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 AirVenture Museum, Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Transportation to and from Oshkosh is ordinarily the responsibility of the student’s family, but the Chapter will consider requests for financial aid. EAA Air Academy staff members are experienced in meeting unaccompanied minors at the Appleton and Green Bay airports. For more information on Air Academy camps, click the following links:
Congratulations to the winners of Chapter 526’s scholarships for EAA Basic Air Academy Camp in 2018: Sydney Greene and Travis Boucher.
During the early autumn of 2018, Chapter 526 will be accepting applications for the 2019 scholarship(s). There is no form. The Young Eagle should submit a letter explaining why he/she would be a good candidate. Include aviation experiences to date, and be sure to mention any specific interests in aviation and aviation-related careers (air traffic controller, airframe and powerplant mechanic, pilot, aeronautical engineer, etc.). This should be a letter written by the Young Eagle, not by a parent or someone else. Feel free to include the names and contact information of teachers or mentors whom you would like us to contact with respect to your application.
