Coming soon: A new Hayward Air Rally Aviation Scholarship!

We are working creating a new scholarship to award monetary support to students endeavoring to join in the exciting world of aviation. Students aged 18 and older will qualify, whether they're embarking on a new career in aviation, or changing tracks from a different career. We hope to begin taking applications in April. Stay tuned for further information by signing up here for email updates.

EAA Air Academy Summer Camp Scholarship

For the past decade, the Hayward Air Rally has provided full tuition scholarships to the EAA Air Academy for deserving students in the Bay Area. Unfortunately, due to declining rally participation, increasing costs, and logistical challenges administering this scholarship, we have decided to suspend the Air Academy Summer Camp Scholarship.
