Dirk Derrick Car & Truck Accident Injury Scholarship
A $1,000 Scholarship For Those Affected By Auto Accidents
The Dirk Derrick Car & Truck Accident Injury Scholarship is an award for any current or soon-to-be undergrad in the United States who has had his or her life altered due to an injury from a car or truck accident, be it their own injury, that of a loved one, or an influential individual. The Dirk Derrick Scholarship has a brief submission process, and applicants will be judged on their ability to convey the lasting effect an auto accident has had on their life as well as their journey to overcome those challenges.
Students applying must submit an essay where you explain, present, inspire, or otherwise convince us as to why you deserve to win this scholarship.There are no conditions or requirements for this essay. Please keep submissions to 5 paragraphs and 600 words at the absolute maximum. This is not a standardized test. While spelling, punctuation, and general cohesiveness will make your essay easier to read, and therefore judge, you are not being graded. The winning submission will be one which clearly conveys a non-fictional story of your life before and after an auto accident.
Auto accidents can be life changing. At The Derrick Law Firm, we believe in keeping the public safe by bringing first hand experience to those who haven’t had it, as well as easing the stress of accident victims as they enter one of the most important phases of their lives.
Application deadline is December 15 or each year.

Background Information: Raymond Meyer
Raymond Meyer learned to fly on the GI Bill after serving in the South Pacific for the US Navy during World War II. He became a student pilot in November 1949 at the Beaverton Airport in Beaverton, Oregon. This is where the Beaverton Chapter of the Oregon Pilots Association was first organized. He became a private pilot on May 25th, 1950. After the war, Raymond took over the family auto repair business which developed into a Chrysler dealership. Raymond left the business in 1968 and became an automotive instructor at Portland Community College. He eventually became the head of the department and retired in 1985.
Although automobiles had been a large part of his life, Raymond's true passion was flying. He and his wife Mary, also a pilot, built a home and turned the property into the Meyer Riverside Airpark. You can still find that airstrip on the sectional chart, 10 nm SE of the Hillsboro Airport. Raymond flew countless trips out of his private airstrip accumulating over 5,000 hours of flight time. He owned 45 different airplanes during his life and introduced hundreds of people to flying, some becoming private pilots and others advancing into professional flying careers.
On May 10, 1997, Raymond and a young passenger, Alex Musatov, were tragically killed on approach to the airpark strip after experiencing engine problems. During his nearly 47 years as a private pilot, Raymond loved flying and enjoyed the excitement of others as they experienced flight. It is in this light that the Raymond Meyer Flight Fund Scholarship has been established, enabling others to experience the joy of flight.
The Raymond Meyer Flight Scholarship is perpetual and has been created for two primary reasons. First, to remember Raymond Meyer as an Oregon Aviator with a passion for flying and for sharing that passion with others. Second, to continue to promote aviation, just as Raymond did during his lifetime, by enabling the opportunity of learning to fly by providing financial assistance.
