What Does The AFA Do For CAP?



For many years, the Air Force Association has recognized the significant aerospace/STEM contributions of Civil Air Patrol to our nation.  In an effort to demonstrate the esteem AFA holds for the work CAP volunteer members accomplish throughout our country, the AFA provides Aerospace Education grants and awards for CAP’s units and cadet/youth members.  Each partnership program is explained in the bold link for each area below.
