Scholarship Opportunities

Falcon Foundation

The Falcon Foundation provides a limited number of highly motivated students the opportunity to prepare for admission to the United States Air Force Academy by providing scholarships at specially selected civilian junior colleges and preparatory schools in various parts of the nation.

The foundation recognizes that many deserving young people with outstanding potential for an Academy education and a desire for an Air Force career need additional academic preparation. The foundation endeavors to meet this need through its sustaining program of annual scholarship grants. The foundation recognizes that the request for a scholarship is an alternate plan to obtain additional education because the applicant has failed to gain an appointment on their first attempt.

The foundation acquires funds necessary to undertake the scholarship program from memberships, contributions and donations. The number of scholarships awarded annually is determined by the funds available. Each sponsorship is dedicated in honor of a pioneer in aviation or individuals who have distinguished themselves in aviation or defense positions.

Each scholarship award provides a significant portion of the cost of room, board and tuition. Scholarship recipients must be able to pay for transportation to and from school and for clothing, laundry and other personal expenses.

You do not need to apply for a scholarship. All Academy applicants not considered for direct entry will be considered for a Falcon scholarship.

The General Henry H. Arnold Educational Fund
