Aaron Rice receives his Adventure Scholarship award

The Flyin Ryan Foundation invites you to consider sponsoring one of our Adventure Scholarships. All our Scholars must clearly demonstrate alignment between their passion, their goals and their engagement in life.

To be considered, an applicant must submit:

  • A short bio, with a picture
  • Their personal essay describing their passion, goals and need for help
  • Letter of recommendation
  • Their self-composed list of core values

We also ask for links to their social media pages such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., so that they can share updates about their funded adventures with everyone in the Flyin Ryan community and beyond. Their personal stories, Core Values, application materials and social media links are shared on personal 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 make better decisions, experience a more engaged life, and become empowered to achieve their goals with passion and determination. We have a policy of non-discrimination, and support any type of adventure. Over the past 5 years, we have made over 100 awards. As our program becomes more well-known, we are getting an increased volume of applications from all over the country.

You can help us to grow this program by making more life-changing awards. The cost to sponsor an adventure scholarship is $1,200.

What you get

  • A thank-you note from your awardee
