It doesn't get any simpler than that!  Each spring, Civil Air Patrol provides academic and flight scholarships to deserving cadets and seniors who meet the eligibility requirements.  Specific scholarships are announced each fall.  Combined with our college partners, we offer over $350,000 in scholarships. 

The following criteria applies to all scholarships.  Additional criteria will be noted within the specifics of an individual scholarship description:

  1. Be a current CAP member;
  2. Have earned the Billy Mitchell Award or received a Senior Rating in any specialty track (except for the Col Mary Feik Flight Scholarship, which requires the Wright Brothers); 
  3. Possess and maintain an academic and discipline standard acceptable to the school;
  4. Be enrolled in a full-time course of study during the academic year for which the scholarship is awarded;
  5. Have not received the scholarship in the past that you are applying for.

Only those members that have been selected for scholarships will need to provide official school transcripts and other supporting documents to validate the information that is provided in the application. 

The e-Services module to apply will be available on 1 December.  More information about how to apply is available on the Applications Procedures website.
