GRANTS FOR EDUCATOR MEMBERS
CAP is not conducting an educator member grant program at this time, but we would like to share our top two organizational grant programs:
1- The Air Force Association (AFA), CAP's partner in aerospace/STEM education, works to try to assist K-12th grade educators perpetuate aerospace/STEM education programs/projects with an annual $500 competitive grant program. The application dates are from September 1st- December 15th each year. Grant recipients are announced in February. Find info HERE.
Find an AFA chapter to assist in the classroom and help with a nomination for the AFA Teacher of the Year program (at the chapter level, which comes with a $250 award; at the state level, which comes with a $500 award; and at the national level, which comes with a $3,000, $2,000, or $1,000 award).
