Scholarships (River Rats)

Recommended Posts

Helping to spread the word that the Red River Valley Fighter Pilots (River Rats) provide scholarships to full time students, both undergrad and grad.

Believe it or not, we are having a hard time getting enough applicants each year to maintain our status with the CFC and 501©(3) status.

Eligibility falls into two categories:

1) Kinship Requirement: Scholarship grant recipients must be immediate dependent (legal son, daughter or spouse) of:

a) A U.S. aircrew member listed as Killed in Action (KIA) or Missing in Action (MIA) from any combat situation involving U.S. military from August 1964 (Vietnam Era) through the present; or

b) A military aircrew member killed as the result of performing aircrew duties during a non-combat mission; or

c) A RRVA member who is currently in good standing or was in good standing at the time of their death.

2) Kinship Not Required: To provide assistance in the education of persons in the fields related to aviation and space (Kinship to deceased aviator not required). Degree must be related to aviation, aerospace, or space.

Applications forms are published mid January of each Calendar year with a submission deadline of 15 May for the Academic Year that runs Aug to Jul.

Any help in spreading the word is greatly appreciated and please let me know if you have any questions.
