Ray Aviation Scholarship 2020

EAA Chapter 15 is proud to announce it's 2020 Ray Foundation Scholarship recipient, Jimmy Duffy. Jimmy is a Senior at Andrew High School and plans to attend Moraine Valley CC before transferring to Lewis University during his junior year of college to pursue a career in aviation. Jimmy was one of 3 finalists that were in the running for the $10,000 flight scholarship. Good luck Jimmy!

Each year, The Ray Foundation, through EAA Oshkosh, grants a scholarship worth up to $10,000 for young adults from ages 15-19 years of age to each qualifying EAA Chapter around the world. The scholarship money is then provided to a local youth that has been vetted by the chapter to obtain the flying license, either glider or private pilot license. Once the youth has been selected by the local chapter, they will then apply and be screened by EAA through a thorough process.

About the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)

The Experimental Aircraft Association is an organization that promotes all forms of recreational aviation. It is a diverse organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds. The EAA was founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own aircrafts. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, and commercially manufactured aircraft. An interest in aviation is the common denominator that brings our people together, in good fellowship and sharing. The EAA is a national organization and has local chapters, such as ours, all over the world. You don't have to be a pilot to join in, the only requirement is a love for aviation.
