Our Chapter is also committed to education by offering scholarships for young individuals to attend youth camps at the EAA grounds. The original scholarship was named for our past President, Jim Jahnke, who passed away in September 1995. He flew 352 Young Eagles. For 2017 we are offering a scholarship to a young individual in one of the four tiers listed below. The approved scholarship recipient will be responsible for $200 while Chapter 651 will take care of the remainder. Click on the individual tier to learn more about the specific program. Registration time runs out quickly for these camps.
