2016 Air Force Club Scholarship Program – Submit an online video or essay between March 1 – May 20, and Club Members could win 1 of 6 scholarships worth $2,500-$5,000.
This year’s topics are:
“Tell us an Air Force story – tell us ‘your’ Air Force Story.”
“We want to hear how you’ve been impacted by the best Air Force on the planet.”
Over the past seventeen years, the Air Force Club Scholarship Program has provided college tuition assistance to over four hundred forty Air Force Club Members and/or their eligible family members. This year the Air Force Club Scholarship Program will again offer this program to all Air Force club members.
In past years, entrants were asked to submit an essay and although this option is still available (essay must now be 1000 words), this year we would like to highly encourage entrants to submit a 5 minute video. Entrants can complete their on-line entry form, paste their essay or video link and upload the two letters of recommendation. The web is filled with video examples–for ideas check out BuzzFeed, Watchout, or CrashCourse.
All essays will be scored by a panel of four judges. Judges will score essays and/or videos on material content, presentation, and adherence to required number of words (for written formats) and required length of video (no more than 5 minutes). Each judge will award 1-10 points, with 10 being the higher score. The top three (3) highest scoring entries in each category will be the winners. The judges’ decision is final.
