2024 Scholarship Application

Due date for application is coming up! Do you know anyone who can benefit with our Scholarship?


This fund was jointly established by the Canadian Airborne Forces Association (CAFA) and the now defunct Airborne Regiment Association of Canada (ARAC). A $2000 bursary is awarded in August each year to one qualified and deserving applicant who will be attending a post-secondary institution in the upcoming academic year in a full-time programme of study. For further info such as contact details of the Scholarship Chairman Bruce Ewing, eligibility, key dates and procedures for application, see the CAFA website at

To be eligible, candidates must have been accepted on a full-time basis at a post-secondary institution and have demonstrated academic aptitude. Eligible applicants for 2024 include current members of CAFA; spouses, children or grandchildren of current CAFA members (either living or deceased); members in good standing of a Cadet Corps that is affiliated with CAFA; or any current Army Cadet who is a qualified Canadian Forces Parachutist. Applications may be submitted in either English or French. The deadline for applications for the bursary each year is 30 June.
