Cadet Character & Leadership Foundation (CCLF) Scholarship Information

As Cadets of Washington Wing; Did you know that you are eligible for a 
scholarship through the Cadet Character and Leadership Foundation (CCLF)? 
CCLF offers scholarships to hardworking and dedicated CAP cadets who would 
like financial help to attend leadership focused CAP 

If you are attending a leadership related National Cadet Special Activity or encampment this summer (or any leadership activity at any time of the year 
for that matter), the CCLF may grant you a scholarship for a percentage ofthe 
activity cost. 

The application process is extremely simple, and more often than not, the 
CCLF will graciously provide a scholarship. Personally, I have applied for a scholarship through CCLF more than once, and was blessed with a 
scholarship each time.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to help fund a leadership 
focused cadet activity that you are attending this summer, check out the Cadet Character and Leadership Foundation website

If you have any questions about CCLF scholarships, 
please feel free to contact:

Employee Volunteer Grants

You can increase the impact of your gift to CAP through an employer matching gift program. 

Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their employees
or employees’ spouses to encourage philanthropic giving! The matching gift 
program is great for maximizing your dollar, as many employers will match 
your gift dollar for dollar or even triple your gift!

Matching gifts will be allocated to the donor's designation (if requested) unless company policy requires distribution to a general fund.

To find out if your employer participates in this program, please visit the 

the Washington Wing webpage, and make sure to talk to your HR department to 
find out if they have a similar program! 

It's almost like getting paid to volunteer!

Are you a cadet in need of financial assistance? Check out 
the scholarships offered by CAP through CadetInvest!
What is CadetInvest?
CadetInvest is CAP scholarship program, but just leaving it at that doesn't give the program enough justice. Along with the academic, flight and encampment scholarship, CadetInvest 
offers programs like a United States Air Force Academy Prep School Recommendation and 
the prestigious Cadet Wings. If you are interested in the wide range of scholarships, visit 
this page for more information.

What are the general eligibility requirements?
Be a current CAP Cadet. See specific program or scholarship information page for minimum 
CAP rank/achievement.

Have not previously been a recipient of the scholarship or program to which you are applying. For example, if you received a Cadet Academic Scholarship last year, this year you may apply
 for the USAA Academic scholarship or another named academic scholarship, or any flight scholarship, but you may not apply for the Cadet Academic Scholarship again.

Possess and maintain an academic and discipline standard acceptable to the school you 

If applying for an academic scholarship, be enrolled in a full-time (as determined by the 
school) course of study during the academic year for which the scholarship is awarded.
