AFA Awards Aerospace Education Grants to Civil Air Patrol Squadrons

AFA awards a new batch of Civil Air Patrol (CAP) squadrons education grants to help promote aerospace education for hundreds of students each season, and we just announced the Winter Recipients!

These specific grants are distributed for use in any Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) activity or materials that promote aerospace education, which includes purchasing textbooks, materials, or activities such as field trips to aerospace museums.

AFA advocates education in these crucial subjects to develop the skills necessary for the 21st century jobs in fields sustaining U.S. air power and national security. AFA awards these education grants, each $250, four times each year, twice to units and twice to individual educators.
