AIAA Foundation Classroom Grant Program

Classroom Grant Submission is now CLOSED


The AIAA Foundation believes that one of the most significant means to inspire and advance the future of Aerospace is to fund grants to meet the unmet and unfunded educational need of students. Each school year, AIAA awards grants of up to $250 to worthy projects that significantly influence student learning.
