Over the past seventeen years, the Air Force Club Scholarship Program has provided college tuition assistance to over four hundred forty Air Force Club Members and/or their eligible family members. This year the Air Force Club Scholarship Program will again offer this program to all Air Force club members.

In past years, entrants were asked to submit an essay and although this option is still available (essay must now be 1000 words), this year we would like to highly encourage entrants to submit a 5 minute video. Entrants can complete their on-line entry form, paste their essay or video link and upload the two letters of recommendation. The web is filled with video examples--for ideas check out BuzzFeed, Watchout, or CrashCourse.
