One of the main purposes of the Order of Daedalians is to provide encouragement for young men and women to become military pilots. The Daedalian Foundation, a non-profit organization, supports this goal by providing scholarships through a variety of means. The largest is the Matching Scholarship Program, wherein the Foundation matches amounts given by Flights, or chapters of the Order of Daedalians, to deserving college and university students who are pursuing a career as a military aviator.
College-bound high school seniors who intend to make a career in military aviation, including Service Academy appointees, are encouraged to contact their nearest Daedalians flight to apply for a scholarship.
If you are interested in applying for a Daedalians scholarship please contact a local Daedalians Flight near you. You can use the Flight Map to find the nearest flight to you. You must be sponsored by a local Flight in order to be considered for a scholarship. Flights typically perform personal interviews with qualified applicants so it is very important that interested applicants get in touch directly with the Flight.
You can also download a copy of the scholarship application.
