Dirk Derrick Car & Truck Accident Injury Scholarship

A $1,000 Scholarship For Those Affected By Auto Accidents

The Dirk Derrick Car & Truck Accident Injury Scholarship is an award for any current or soon-to-be undergrad in the United States who has had his or her life altered due to an injury from a car or truck accident, be it their own injury, that of a loved one, or an influential individual. The Dirk Derrick Scholarship has a brief submission process, and applicants will be judged on their ability to convey the lasting effect an auto accident has had on their life as well as their journey to overcome those challenges.

Students applying must submit an essay where you explain, present, inspire, or otherwise convince us as to why you deserve to win this scholarship.There are no conditions or requirements for this essay. Please keep submissions to 5 paragraphs and 600 words at the absolute maximum. This is not a standardized test. While spelling, punctuation, and general cohesiveness will make your essay easier to read, and therefore judge, you are not being graded. The winning submission will be one which clearly conveys a non-fictional story of your life before and after an auto accident.

Auto accidents can be life changing. At The Derrick Law Firm, we believe in keeping the public safe by bringing first hand experience to those who haven’t had it, as well as easing the stress of accident victims as they enter one of the most important phases of their lives.

Application deadline is December 15 or each year.

EAA 105 Youth Flight Scholarship Program

Scholarship Program Information (Updated: June 2019)

Application Status:  Open – Currently Accepting Applications

Each year EAA Chapter 105 awards a number of youth flight training scholarships, which are intended to assist young people in the Oregon/Southwest Washington area in their pursuit of learning to fly and advancing their aviation skills. The number of available scholarships varies from year to year. Applicants may submit their applications at any time, and the selection committee periodically considers applications as appropriate, given the available funds and program status. That said, while scholarships may be applied for at any time, the selection process may also include periodic announcements soliciting applications with a specific time window and with a defined deadline for applications, in order to be considered for a consolidated selection “drive.” In other words, applicants are encouraged to apply at any time, but should also stay aware of the scholarship program’s selection efforts and any scheduled activities throughout the year. This web page is the definitive source of program information.

The scholarships, which are administered by EAA Chapter 105 in Hillsboro, Oregon and co-funded by the Chapter, private donors and the Bogardus Trust, are highly sought-after and we consistently have more applicants than available scholarships. A set of formal eligibility criteria determine who may apply and a selection team determines to whom scholarships are awarded.

TO APPLY:  The young person who is applying for the scholarship is expected to complete their own application process, documentation, requests for recommendation letters, etc. on their own. We won’t accept applications prepared by someone else (parents included) on behalf of the young person for whom the scholarship is desired. Flight training is an individual commitment, which requires initiative, organization and drive. The young person should prepare and submit an application packet as described below. You may submit your application electronically to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


  • To be eligible to apply for a powered aircraft flight training scholarship, the applicant must be between the ages of 15 and 24 years old at the time of application.
  • To be eligible to apply for a non-powered (glider/sailplane) aircraft flight training scholarship, the applicant must be between the ages of 13 and 24 years at the time of application.
  • Both first-time applicants and prior scholarship recipients are eligible to apply.
  • This is a local-area slight scholarship program, serving youth in Oregon and southwest Washington.
  • Applicants who are selected for an interview as part of the process will be required to interview in-person in Hillsboro, Oregon.
  • Recipients of scholarships from this program will be expected to participate and interact with the local aviation community via EAA Chapter 105 events and activities.

Background Information: Raymond Meyer

Raymond Meyer learned to fly on the GI Bill after serving in the South Pacific for the US Navy during World War II. He became a student pilot in November 1949 at the Beaverton Airport in Beaverton, Oregon. This is where the Beaverton Chapter of the Oregon Pilots Association was first organized. He became a private pilot on May 25th, 1950. After the war, Raymond took over the family auto repair business which developed into a Chrysler dealership. Raymond left the business in 1968 and became an automotive instructor at Portland Community College.  He eventually became the head of the department and retired in 1985.

Although automobiles had been a large part of his life, Raymond's true passion was flying. He and his wife Mary, also a pilot, built a home and turned the property into the Meyer Riverside Airpark. You can still find that airstrip on the sectional chart, 10 nm SE of the Hillsboro Airport.  Raymond flew countless trips out of his private airstrip accumulating over 5,000 hours of flight time. He owned 45 different airplanes during his life and introduced hundreds of people to flying, some becoming private pilots and others advancing into professional flying careers.

On May 10, 1997, Raymond and a young passenger, Alex Musatov, were tragically killed on approach to the airpark strip after experiencing engine problems. During his nearly 47 years as a private pilot, Raymond loved flying and enjoyed the excitement of others as they experienced flight. It is in this light that the Raymond Meyer Flight Fund Scholarship has been established, enabling others to experience the joy of flight.

Mission Statement

The Raymond Meyer Flight Scholarship is perpetual and has been created for two primary reasons. First, to remember Raymond Meyer as an Oregon Aviator with a passion for flying and for sharing that passion with others. Second, to continue to promote aviation, just as Raymond did during his lifetime, by enabling the opportunity of learning to fly by providing financial assistance.
