Captain Earle Worley Scholarship

The Captain Earle Worley Scholarship Fund was established in 2017 to honor the memory of Captain Worley, a career pilot with United Airlines for 35 years, retiring in 1988. His love for aviation started when he entered the Navy as a naval air cadet. He then became a flight instructor and a member of the Civil Air Patrol. He founded the Eagles Chapter of the Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society in Williamsburg.

The scholarship is intended to support post-secondary educational scholarships for qualifying graduates of public or private high schools in Virginia, attending an accredited two- or four-year community college, college or university, or vocational school in the United States who plan to study aeronautics, aerospace, aviation or related engineering.
