Application Process

GENERAL HENRY H. ARNOLD EDUCATION GRANT PROGRAM

The General Henry H. Arnold Education Grant program is the centerpiece of the Society’s education support initiatives, awarding competitive education grants to eligible Air Force dependents based on family financial need. This award is so integral to AFAS education programs, in fact, that the application process for the Arnold Education Grant serves as the platform to access other important AFAS education support opportunities.

Since launching in 1988, nearly $167 million in Arnold Education Grants have been awarded to 109,499 hopeful scholars.


AFAS MERIT SCHOLARSHIP

Each year AFAS awards a number of merit based scholarships as a complement to the needs-based support allocated through the hallmark Arnold Education Grant program. Scholars who are being considered for the Arnold Education Grant may also be evaluated on academic merit and considered separately for an AFAS Merit Scholarship.
