The EAA106 Youth Scholarship was established in 2012
to send a few New England youth who have demonstrated a
true passion for aviation to an amazing 1-wk aviation camp!DEMONSTRATED* NEW ENGLAND? Will you be during JULY 14-22, 2015? (or within 2-3 weeks?)
OR Will you be during AUG 3-9, 2015? (or within 2-3 weeks?)
For each youth sent to Oshkosh to attend this amazing aviation camp, the following represents the estimated cost to our chapter:
Camp Tuition -- up to $ 1,320 (this includes education/workshops/flights, lodging/food,
and EAA shuttle to/from the Appleton, WI airport)
AirFare (est) -- up to $ 650 (estimate for flight only from a major New England airport
and based on max cost of one scholarship flight in 2014)
1st bag fee -- est $ 50 (based on 2014 bag fee cost)
TOTAL EST COST PER YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP:
up to $ 2,020
IF we can raise enough through YOUTH FUND DONATIONS
and CHAPTER 106 FUNDS, we'd like to be able to send FOUR youth in 2015.

A small portion of our cost is offset by youth "credits" earned by our wonderful Young Eagle pilots
(In addition to flying and inspiring youth throughout the year, they earn the chapter $5 in EAA youth credits per youth flown when an EAA pilot has flown at at least 10 Young Eagles in a calendar year)
Another portion is offset by any EAA "Campership" awarded by EAA to one or more of our selected winners (Our applicants MUST apply for an EAA "Campership" to hopefully reduce the amount our local chapter needs to cover for our winners -- The more our winners can get in "Camperships" from EAA, the more youth we can send to camp from our donations and chapter funds.
NOTE: Our Youth Scholarship donations and 2015 budget (approval expected early Jan 2015),
along with the quality of applicants, will determine whether we will be
able to award 1, 2, 3 or 4 scholarships this year.
