Scholarships

Since 1990, our organization has presented monetary scholarships to special active STARFLEET members who are attending community colleges, four-year colleges, most technical schools, junior colleges, and universities or graduate school, or any other accredited institution/organization that offers a certificate/certified program.  If unsure, just ask the Director.

Scholarships are awarded in amounts of up to $1,000 based on number of applicants and availability of funds. APPLICANTS MUST BE A STARFLEET MEMBER AND MUST HAVE BEEN A STARFLEET MEMBER FOR AT LEAST ONE YEAR BEFORE THE APPLICATION DEADLINE. 

The scholarships are presented at our annual International Conference each summer.
