    Posted on March 25th, 2013 John Dorcey No comments

    The Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame (WAHF) , as part of its mission, looks to promote aviation education for future generations. One way the organization achieves that mission is through the awarding of scholarships. The program began in 2002 when WAHF presented its first scholarship. Since then the program has literally taken off. Today the organization announced an expansion to the program.

    Wisconsin residents who are continuing students in a 2 or 4-year accredited aviation or aerospace program are eligible for either the Carl Guell or Jerome Ripp Memorial Scholarships. These awards are based on scholastic achievement and participation in extracurricular activities at school and within the community. The Theissen Field Scholarship is awarded to a student enrolled in an aviation program provided by any of Wisconsin’s Technical Colleges. This award places financial need above scholastic ability.

    Applications for any of the three awards are available through the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin. Look for either the Jerome Theissen Aviation Financial Assistance Fund or Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame Scholarship from the list of awards. Applications must be completed and received by the foundation by April 15. Applicants are asked to attend WAHF’s induction ceremony held annually in Oshkosh, WI during October. Additional details are found in the organization’s press release. Donations to WAHF’s scholarship fund can be made through either the Community Foundation or WAHF.
