EAA Chapter 15 Scholarship Opportunity

In 2010 EAA Chapter 15 established a scholarship fund. In 2018, the Chapter announced a major advancement:


  •  Three scholarships will be awarded: $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000
  • Submissions through Lewis University; 2019 awards will be announced in October, 2019
  •  Chapter 15 is a group of airplane pilots, builders, mechanics, plus anyone interested in general aviation. 
  • We want to support students working toward a career in aviation
  • We also want to introduce students to the world of general aviation
  • While the final award decision will be made by Lewis University, Chapter 15 will review submissions and make recommendations
  • Preference will be given to students who are members of EAA and participate in general aviation activities through a local EAA chapter
  • For more information about the Experimental Aircraft Association, see
  • Chapter 15 is located at Lewis Airport; meetings are held at the terminal building on the second Tuesday of each month. Students are invited and are very welcome to join us!
  • Students who are active in a different chapter of EAA will be given equal consideration as those involved with Chapter 15; to find a chapter, use the locator at under "chapters"
  • For more information, contact Chapter 15 President Jerry Ossowski ( or any member of Chapter 15
