Aaron Rice receives sponsored Adventure Scholarship award

The Flyin Ryan Foundation invites you to sponsor an Adventure Scholar in their pursuit of excellence. All our Adventure Scholars must clearly demonstrate their passion, goals and their engagement in life in the face of financial need.

To be considered, an applicant must submit:

  • A short bio, with a picture
  • Their personal essay describing their passion, goals and need for help
  • A letter of recommendation from a coach, teacher or other mentor
  • Their self-composed list of core values

We also link to their social media pages so they can share updates about their Foundation funded adventures with the Flyin Ryan community and beyond. Their personal stories, Core Values, application materials and social media links are shared on individual Adventure Scholar profile pages on our website.

The Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation promotes the development of Core Values by students and young athletes as a pathway to better decision making, more engagement in life, and empowerment to achieve their goals with passion and determination.

We have a firm policy of non-discrimination, and may support any type of adventure. The Foundation has made over 100 awards since the program began. As the Adventure Scholars  program has grown, we have received increasing numbers of applications from all over the country.

You can help us grow this program by supporting these life-changing awards with a sponsorship.
