EAA106 Youth Scholarship - TWO PHASES:

Our scholarship application process will be in two rounds:
            First round - A round to narrow the list to just the most aviation-passionate youth.
            Final round - Selecting amount those, utilizing some additional essays. 

PHASE 1 -- 
70% of the score will cover what action you have taken in pursuit of your passion for aviation.  Any statements (whether in the clickable list of actions and/or Essay #2) may require additional supporting documentation if requested.  We suggest you expand upon any items clicked in Section 3 as part of your Section 4 Essay number 2.
There are three essays focused on 1) HOW interest in aviation started, 2) what ACTIONS have been taken in pursuit of that passion, and 3) WHY you want to attend and why we should select you.

DONATIONS impact how many youth we can send

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) 
                              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.

Are you an ADULT reading this ?  
If so, we welcome your tax-deductible $UPPORT to help inspire these youth!

We are an IRS designated 501(c)(3) Public Charity and if you itemize your taxes, your donation may be deductible -- ask your CPA.


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.
