What and Who is the Scholarship for?

It is envisioned that scholarships will be awarded to CAWG cadets who show a financial need that cannot be met at the squadron level. Scholarships will be awarded to current cadet members of the California Wing. Funds donated to the scholarship fund will be deposited by the CAWG, Civil Air Patrol. Donations will be accepted year round.

How do cadets apply for the Scholarship?

Applications will be submitted by current CAWG cadets to their Squadron Commander describing, in writing, why there is a financial need for the funds, the amount being requested and for what purpose the funds will be used. The cadet’s squadron commander will give an assessment, in writing, validating the financial need as outlined by the cadet. Both the cadet’s application and the squadron commander’s assessment will be forwarded to the Director of Cadet Programs (DCP)( for review.
