Teens-In-Flight Announces Partnership with Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation
Using the provisions of Public Law 111-32 and Public Law 84-634, Teens-In-Flight will closely coordinate with the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty, and are seeking enrollment in an aviation oriented college or university throughout the nation. These scholarships provide for full tuition, room and board, and all flight lessons and ratings.
“This partnership gives the children we work with access to fulfill the education of their dreams,” said John Coogan, executive director. “For those looking to fly and work in aviation, Teens-In-Flight will help make this dream a reality.”
