EAA Scholarship Information
Scholarships open the doors to the future, providing youth with the necessary support to fulfill their educational aspirations. By giving wings to enthusiastic youth with the passion for flight, you’ll be giving not only the opportunity to pursue their dreams, but also the confidence they’ll need to succeed.
Regardless of passion and commitment, often times youth don’t have the economic means necessary to pursue their dreams. Don’t let the distraction of financial worries get in the way of a student taking flight in their academic career. Help them focus their attention on the attainment of skills and proficiency that will only enhance their educational experiences.

Harrison Ford Education Scholarship Challenge
Newly established fund established by Jim and Angela Thompson, this scholarship will enable young people of all backgrounds to apply for support to help them pursue their aviation interests. Donations to this fund will be matched by the Thompsons up to $100,000. It is their hope that EAA members and friends will support this goal, building a $200,000 scholarship fund in Harrison Ford’s name, honoring his five year commitment and service as EAA’s Young Eagles National Chairman. During his tenure as national leader of Young Eagles, awareness for the program soared as nearly 500,000 young people became Young Eagles.
The fund will provide assistance to young people seeking to take their FAA written pilot’s exam (after completing EAA’s free online ground school training), take their first formal flying lesson, attend EAA Air Academy residential aviation camp, secure support to obtain their sport pilot’s license or further their passion and interest in aviation through tuition support, enabling them to pursue post secondary education at an institution of their choice.
