MANSFIELD, OH - The Mansfield Aviation Club (MAC), established in 1949, is pleased to announce that it has recently been designated as a 501 c (3) organization and is now able to fulfill a key part of its purpose, that being “to provide aviation scholarships for others to learn to fly.”

The ability for MAC to offer Aviation Scholarships was given a kick start when one of our members provided a generous donation that has established the fund which will be managed by the Richland County Foundation.

Throughout its history, the Mansfield Lahm Airport has served our community by being one of the finest general aviation airports in our state. However, in recent years, as the cost of flying has become more expensive, many who had the dream to become a pilot may have found it beyond their financial means. It is our hope that these scholarships will enable some of those individuals in the Richland area the opportunity to fulfill their dream.

Through March 31st, the formal process to apply for a MAC Aviation Scholarship will be available on the Richland County Foundation website: http://www.richlandcountyfoundation.org/grants-and-scholarships/scholarships/apply-for-a-scholarship

This year, MAC will award one $750.00 aviation scholarship, to be announced during the July 4th weekend.

For those who love aviation and want to support this effort, tax deductible donations can be made to the MAC Aviation Scholarship Fund through the Richland County Foundation: http://www.richlandcountyfoundation.org/funds/mansfield-aviation-club
