The Spaatz Association annually sponsors scholarships to help CAP cadets advance their flight training from solo to private pilot. In order to apply, you must be a current CAP cadet who has earned the Mitchell Award, have earned solo wings in a powered aircraft, and maintain a 3.0 GPA. While HQ CAP helps publicize this scholarship, it is funded by The Spaatz Association, which selects the scholarship recipients. Apply directly to The Spaatz Association, not HQ CAP.
Since Civil Air Patrol’s formation during the earliest days of World War II, this vigilant organization of citizen Airmen has been committed to service to America. Founded on Dec. 1, 1941, to mobilize the nation's civilian aviation resources for national defense service, CAP has evolved into a premier public service organization that still carries out emergency service missions when needed — in the air and on the ground. The Civil Air Patrol offers numerous scholarships to interested students.
