Getting students excited about STEM and aerospace education benefits all of us. It elevates the American education system while equipping future generations with vital knowledge and skills to thrive in our competitive global economy. With these specialized insights, America's youth is learning how to also protect our country against increasingly complex national security threats. That's why AFA is part of the nationwide push to advance STEM and aerospace education.
By sponsoring our STEM programs, scholarships, and awards, you help open more doors for youth who may not otherwise have access to powerful opportunities.
