In 1987, the AIRLANT Wives Club noticed a need for scholarships within the Navy Aviation community. Through a variety of fundraisers, including bake sales and fashion shows, they gave away their first scholarships. In the 25 years since, this "wives club scholarship" has experienced amazing growth in scope and breadth.
Today, through the work of our fantastic Board of Directors, volunteers and staff, our foundation has awarded over $1,000,000 to outstanding students worldwide.
Our mission is to provide college scholarships to dependent children and spouses of all US Navy personnel- officer and enlisted - active duty, retired, honorably discharged or deceased who served within Naval Air Forces. Recipients are selected on the basis of scholastic merit, community service, extra-curricular activities and character.
Wings Over America annually sponsors fifty scholarships to students who have chosen to continue their education. The foundation is funded solely through the generous contributions of private and corporate sources, and has proudly awarded over $1,000,000 to outstanding students since 1987.
Our scholarships include community college, trade & technical school as well as traditional college scholarships. We have annual and renewable scholarships and also administer scholarships for other naval aviation groups. Click on the Application Process to learn more about us!
