About the EAA/Ray Scholarships:
The Ray Aviation Scholarship Fund is a program funded by the Ray Foundation, managed by the Experimental Aircraft Association (national) and administered through the EAA Chapter network. This program provides up to $10,000 to deserving youths for their flight training expenses. HAWK flight instructor Bruce Erickson took the initiative to get the local EAA Chapter 800 approved for this program, HAWK Member Randy Owen was selected to administer the funds and supervise the students. HAWK has helped several students apply for and receive Ray Foundation scholarships. Samuel is the latest to complete his private pilots certificate training under the program.
