What Scholarships do we have
Contact Info, Cost for tickets to get home.
Residency Requirements
"The Falcon Foundation makes annual cash grants for scholarships to several schools in various parts of the nation. Each scholarship award provides a portion of the cost of room, board and tuition. Scholarship recipients must pay for transportation to and from school and for clothing, laundry, other personal expenses and their proportionate share of the tuition, fees and books."

Young people are automatically eligible for a Falcon Scholarship by first applying to USAFA. The USAFA Office of Admissions then identifies potential recipients of the Falcon Foundation scholarship from a pool of direct entry applicants who are qualified, but not competitive for entering the next class at USAFA. Those applicants who are deemed qualified but not competitive are rank ordered and contacted for consideration of a Falcon Foundation Scholarship.
The price to get from Chicago IL. to the air force academy is about $464 for a round trip ticket.

Rooms in the two dormitories, Vandenberg Hall and Sijan Hall, are similar. Each ROOM, which is approximately 13 feet wide and 18 feet long, is designed for two cadets. The room contains two large closets, a counter with a built-in sink, a large mirror and a medicine cabinet. Every cadet room also has a twin-size modular bed, dresser and desk for each cadet. There is a proper location for everything you are allowed to have in YOUR room, and you will be expected to keep your room in cadet inspection order.

The Academy provides opportunities for you to enjoy a change of pace through participation in cadet ACTIVITIES and social functions. This comes as a welcome break from the military activities, ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS and athletic participation of the busy school week. You will find the Arnold Hall social center a relaxing place to enjoy dancing, games, movies, entertainers and television and the snack bar in the Richter Lounge is popular with cadets, too. The cadet wing social committees also arrange dances, both formal and informal, throughout the year.
