To further the Objectives of the Order of Daedalians insofar as assisting in the education of deserving young persons in the fields of aerospace engineering and flight, and encouraging those young people who receive valuable aerospace training to pursue a military career, the Daedalian Foundation has established a Descendants Scholarship Program for descendants of Daedalian members. Applicants must be a direct descendant (natural or adopted) of a Founder, Named, or Hereditary member in good standing (living or deceased) of the Order of Daedalians, and a citizen of the United States of America.
The Foundation will award scholarships annually to eligible students nominated by Daedalian Flights or submitted directly by the descendant and to the Scholarship Committee of the Daedalian Foundation. Additional awards may be made based upon availability of resources. Applicants must have a 2.5 GPA, as well as demonstrate financial need. Students may chose a career as a commissioned officer in one of the armed forces of the United States in a discipline directly supporting aeronautics or astronautics.
