2017 Air Force Club Scholarship Program


Over the past 19 years, the Air Force Club Scholarship Program has provided college tuition assistance to over 446 Air Force club members and/or their eligible family members. This year also marks the 70th anniversary of the Air Force. Throughout these seven decades, a common bond that has unified all American Airmen are the core values. The Air Force has three core values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.

For 2017 please submit a written or video essay telling us about a time when you were tested to live up to these core values. Tell us about a specific moment when embodying these ideals was difficult, how you succeeded or failed, what you learned from the experience and how that impacts the way you live your life today.

To apply for this program you must be an active Air Force club member in good standing (account is not inactive, delinquent, or charged off) or an eligible family member (spouse, son, daughter, step-child, or grandchild).  If you meet the eligibility requirements, then come back to this site 1 March through 12 May 2017 to apply.  Prior to applying please read all information carefully.
