The Air Force Association (AFA)helps provide educational opportunities for America’s youth. These opportunities were initiated to help ensure that future generations of Americans:
To accomplish their educational goals, the AFA communicates directly with the American public about the importance of maintaining a sound aerospace infrastructure and the importance of maintaining a strong Air Force to ensure national security. Another important part of their educational efforts is to support the educational objectives of the Air Force and CAP. As part of that support, the AFA recognizes outstanding contributions in the field of aerospace education. To support CAP’s aerospace education programs, the AFA provides aerospace education grants for Civil Air Patrol units. Since 1996, the AFA has provided over $300,000 to CAP units and teachers to help fund their aerospace education programs, inspiring interest in over 300,000 youth toward science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects and careers.
The requirements and selection criteria for the Air Force Association Grants for the Civil Air Patrol Units are as follows:
