Archer-Ragsdale Arizona Chapter Tuskegee Airmen Inc. Scholarship Fund
“Tuskegee Airmen” refers to a distinguished group men and women who trained and served in the Army Air Corps during World War II and during the years immediately following the war. The Tuskegee Airmen included pilots, navigators, bombardiers, maintenance and support staff, instructors and all the personnel who kept the planes in the air.
The mission of the Archer Ragsdale Arizona Chapter (ARAC) is to Preserve, Honor, and Promote the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen accomplishments in Education, Military Aviation, and Self-Determination through Youth Motivational Programs.
Each year the Archer Ragsdale Arizona Chapter awards two $1500 scholarships to deserving graduating high school students who are college bound. Preferential consideration is given to those students who have attended the chapter’s Aerospace Career Education (ACE) Academy. Two Ashby-Herring scholarships will be awarded and are named in honor founding ARAC members who are Original Tuskegee Airmen.
