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!


Do you have
A  DEMONSTRATED*  PASSION for AVIATION?
Do you  Live in NEW ENGLAND? (MA, NH, RI, CT, VT, ME)
Will you be AGE 16-18  during JULY 19-27, 2016?  (or within 2-3 weeks?)

* NOTE:   ACTIONS, not just dreams ...     
When we say we're looking for a DEMONSTRATED AVIATION PASSION, we want to know what ACTIONS an applicant has taken about their professed passion, not just dreams. To that end, we are seeking youth who are so passionate about aviation that you not only are taking flight lessons, but are working to pay for some or all of the cost of your flight lessons.

Announcing the 
2017 EAA Chapter 106 YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP 
to the EAA AIR ACADEMY in OSHKOSH, WI 
to expand the aviation knowledge of a few aviation-passionate New England youth through a total immersion aviation camp experience.

The 8-day camp includes:
    -- Lodging and meals
    -- Flight Training Ground School
    -- Aircraft Construction, Restoration and Maintenance Skills
    -- Airplanes - Learn about aviation history and flight
    -- See some of the World's Largest Aviation event: http://www.airventure.org/

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,
            along with the quality of applicants, will determine whether we will be
            able to award 1, 2, or 3 scholarships this year.
