AFAS 2019 Annual Report

“THE MONEY THAT I RECEIVED FROM THIS AMAZING GRANT HAS ALLOWED ME NOT TO STRESS OVER FUNDS.”

FOCUSED ON HER STUDIES

A grant from AFAS allows one college student to stay focused.

Brianna knows what it means to be a part of the Air Force family because of her father, Master Sergeant Willard Arthur, who retired in 2004 after 20 years of service. “The Air Force really, really helped our family out, with all the benefits that we can receive from them,” she said, including the education grant from AFAS. For those who contribute to AFAS, Brianna is grateful for their generosity. “They are affecting us a ton. Our families are not stressed anymore. We’re not going to be in debt because of you guys, so we appreciate that. I appreciate that especially,” she said. Hoping that every student knows about the Hap Arnold Education Grant, Brianna said it can “change their lives and help them get through school.” And as she continues her studies at Delaware State University as a mass communications major, Brianna knows exactly how this opportunity has created lasting change in her life.

Freshman Brian- na Arthur wanted to receive a good college education while not accu- mulating debt that could hinder her after graduation. Fortunately, she

received numerous scholarships to help her achieve this goal, including a grant from AFAS. The General Henry “Hap” Arnold Education Grant, also known as the centerpiece of educational support offered by AFAS, is a need-based grant offered to the dependents and spouses of Airmen. “The money that I received from this amazing grant has allowed me not to stress over funds,” Brianna said. The Hap Arnold Education Grant allows her to avoid having to find additional part-time jobs to pay for school and instead dedicate more time to her studies and obtaining a degree.
