    The Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) awards various grants through the 
    centerpiece of AFAS education support, The General Henry H. Arnold 
    Education Grant.  The Arnold Education Grant is competitive in its 
    needs-based selection criteria and is uniquely tailored to recognize 
    the proper weighing of family income and education costs.  

    Grants ranging from $500 to $4,000 are awarded to eligible Air Force
    dependents each year.  The specific amount awarded correlates to a 
    student's particular level of financial need.  

    Eligibility: AFAS education support is available to dependent sons and
    daughters of active duty, Title 10 Reservists on extended active duty,
    Title 32 Guard performing full-time active duty, retired, retired 
    Reserve and deceased Air Force members, as well as spouses of active
    duty and Title 10 Reservists, and widows/widowers.

    Applications are available on-line beginning January 2019 
    Deadline for AFAS Grants:  Mid-March
