AFA Announces 2010 AFA-FCEF ROTC Scholarships
Arlington, VA – The Air Force Association (AFA) recently announced the two recipients of the jointly sponsored AFA – First Command Educational Foundation (FCEF) Air Force ROTC Scholarships. Each recipient will receive a $5,000 check from FCEF at their college.
The scholarship is for Air Force ROTC cadets who are pursuing an undergraduate degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math subject area. The award is determined on the basis of both academic merit and financial need. Air Force ROTC Headquarters assisted in the selection of the award recipients.
