Chicago Chapter Educational Assistance Program



Chicago “DODO” Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen, Inc.

Educational Assistance Program


The Chicago Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. announces it’s annual Educational Assistance Program (EAP).  The objective of the EAP is to provide economic assistance to students wishing to continue their personal and academic growth by attending accredited post secondary institutions of higher learning.  The Educational Assistance Program presents financial awards to students who emulate and honor the Tuskegee Airmen.  Successful candidates are students whose accomplishments model the same characteristics demonstrated by the Tuskegee Airmen, such as discipline, education, excellence, perseverance and achievement.

The award also supports students whose interest in aviation deserves recognition and mentoring.

The EAP has established two categories of scholarship awards:

  • Aviation Training Scholarships $1,000 (2) and $1,500 (1)
    Distribution of the award is based upon acceptance at any accredited institution as a full-time student with an emphasis upon ROTC, aeronautical engineering or aviation training.
  • Merit Scholarships for $1,000 (2) and $1,500 (1)
    Distribution of the award is based upon academic performance in conjunction with school, extra-curricular and community activities.
  • Since 2004, the Chicago Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen has distributed over $90,000 in Educational Assistance awards to Chicago Area students

The applications must be postmarked by the last day of February in each year.  Applications may downloaded from this site.
