Civil Air Patrol
Since 1996, the Civil Air Patrol has provided grant programs that have impacted more than 350,000 youth. To support CAP’s aerospace education programs, we provide aerospace education grants for Civil Air Patrol units. Through 20 educational grants awarded annually, we help students strive toward a future in STEM careers with confidence.
Air Force Junior ROTC Grant
The AFJROTC Grant was established to promote aerospace education throughout classrooms and units. As an Aerospace Science Instructor, heighten your students’ interest in how aerospace plays a prominent role in shaping society. Grants are issued twice a year.
TEACHER OF THE YEAR
Teachers do so much more than educate. They inspire, motivate, and nurture. Our unique Teacher of the Year program rewards special teachers who help students see STEM education as an exciting adventure.
Pitsenbarger Awards provide a one-time grant of $400 to selected top Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve Air Force enlisted personnel graduating from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) with plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree. The grants coincide with the CCAF graduation ceremonies held each spring and fall.
Outstanding Cadet of the Year
Every year, each detachment, squadron, or unit may select one outstanding cadet of the year. We are proud to support these cadets with an award celebrating their remarkable accomplishments.
