Educator Grants

2017 Educator Grant Recipients

Guidelines
                   

The Air Force Association believes that one of the most significant means to affect student learning is to fund grants to meet the unmet and unfunded educational needs of students. Each school year, the Association awards grants of up to $500 to worthy projects that significantly influence student learning.

The grant process is competitive in nature.

Based upon the funding available, the Association will choose to invest in projects that best serve our nation’s students and support the mission of the Air Force Association.

The Educator Grant program promotes aerospace education activities in classrooms from kindergarten through twelfth grades. The program encourages development of innovative aerospace activities within the prescribed curriculum.
