AFA's Dedication to Education

Education is the foundation of a successful and prosperous society. It’s a fundamental building block of and one of the strongest instruments for progress and development. It’s also a key part of the Air Force Association’s mission. We work with senior military and Department of Defense leadership, members of Congress, industry professionals and educators from all over the nation to further educate the public on the critical role of aerospace power in defense of our nation.

One of the ways we can work directly with educators is by financially supporting the efforts of K-12 educators who individually attempt to further aerospace and aviation education in their classrooms. Educators throughout the country have received grants to help develop their innovative programs, projects and activities that encourage students to further explore the exciting world of aviation and aerospace. From field trips to aerospace museums or Air Force bases to purchasing books, DVDs or films on aerospace topics, the receivers of our grants are educators who go above and beyond to promote aerospace education outside of conventional curricula.
