CadetInvest Application Guide

You MUST complete the financial aid application prior to 31 Dec at 1200 CST if you desire to receive a portion of the generous financial aid available to cadets.  The opportunity to apply for specific programs comes around February of next year.  For some programs, such as Cadet Wings, no further application is needed as this is purely a financial aid program designed to pay for cadet flight training.  For other programs, such as TOP, cadets will need to apply for specific National Flight Academies as the dates become available.  

 

Please use the following guidelines to help you navigate through the application process for CAP Cadet Financial Aid to include scholarships, and various paid flight training programs.

 

The deadline for applying for financial aid for CY2021 is 31 Dec 2020 at 1200 CST — NO EXCEPTIONS.

For specific application instructions for the various programs, click on the blue highlighted link.  Even if you haven’t completed the prerequisites for a program, go ahead and select all of the programs as indicated below.  Here is where you will find the specific Supplemental Information you need to provide for the various programs.  You will provide this Supplemental Information when you get to Tab 6:  Supplemental.

Now check the email address that is shown in eServices for the cadet.  This is the ONLY address that National HQ will use to communicate with the cadet.  Make sure to check your email address listed in eServices regularly to ensure that you don’t miss requests for additional information or notices of awards requiring confirmation or forfeiture if not acknowledged.

 

 

Remember:

 

I.  The deadline is the deadline!  

II.  At this point, you are just applying for financial aid.
