Scholarships

Each year the Poplar Grove Aviation Education Association and the Vintage Wings and Wheels Museum award a series of scholarships aimed at helping youth pursue their careers in both the aviation and automotive industries. Thanks to the generosity of the Thomas Family, donations to the Poplar Grove Vintage Wings and Wheels Museum, and EAA Chapter 1414 these scholarships are awarded each year and make a difference in our community.

Scholarship applications for 2023 are now available. Applications must be received by March 31, 2023. The Awards will be announced in April, and the award ceremony will be held Sunday June 11, 2023.
