The Order of Daedalians

November 10th, 2016, 12:00PM

Scholarships can help a student to offset flight training but an award can go even further if it’s matched by an organization such as the Order of Daedalians, whose main purpose is to encourage young men and women to become military pilots. The Daedalians offer some individual aid, often matching the contributions of flight schools, individual mentors, as well as nine awards to cadets nominated by an ROTC headquarters (Air Force, Army, Navy).
