Abstract : On May 1, 1956, the Air Force Association established the Aerospace Educational Foundation supports a range of educational and scholarship programs nationwide, which are of special interest to AFA members. As a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, all contributions to AEF are tax deductible. AEF educates AFA members and the public about the critical role aerospace development plays in the contemporary world. In its first year, AEF presented three awards to two civilians and an officer of the Air Research and Development Command by General Doolittle. In 1957, the first AEF scholarships were established for children of deceased Air Force test pilots. By 1958, AEF sponsored its first national symposium, 'The Space Age in Perspective.' The history of the Aerospace Education Foundation is a dynamic story of a foundation that identified the needs of the Air Force and the broader needs of the nation's aerospace community, and acted to meet those needs.
