CHECK BACK IN EARLY JANUARY
for our 2017 Scholarship Info & Application
Here was our 2016 Youth Scholarship information page:
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 in Wisconsin!DEMONSTRATED* NEW ENGLAND? Will you be during JULY 19-27, 2016? (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 $ 1,385 (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 a previous scholarship flight)
1st bag fee -- est $ 50 (based on 2015 bag fee cost)
TOTAL EST COST PER YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP:
up to $ 2,085
IF we can raise enough through YOUTH FUND DONATIONS
and CHAPTER 106 FUNDS, we'd like to be able to send up to 3 youth in 2016.
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.
For our DONATION PAGE: CLICK HERE Thanks!
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 2016 budget (approved Jan 22, 2016),
along with the quality of applicants, will determine whether we will be
able to award 1, 2, or 3 scholarships this year.
