AFAS Education Loan Program

Program Description

Knowing incidental college expenses for books, fees and supplies can pose a hardship for families already coping with high tuition and room and board costs, the Society offers an interest-free loan to help reimburse families for these kinds of expenses.


  • A $1,000 interest-free loan


  • This loan is open only to dependents of regular Active Duty, Title 10 AGR/Reserve on extended active duty, Title 32 AGR performing full time active duty, regular Retired and Retired Reserve with 20+ years of creditable service who applied for the 2014-2015 General Henry H. Arnold Education Grant, as their eligibility has already been verified through the grant application process, and AFAS has the ability to collect repayment by allotment directly from the members’ military/retired pay. Maximum dollar amount for each full-time dependent undergraduate student is $1,000, regardless of whether or not they received the need-based Arnold Grant.
