The Freedom Scholarship Sponsored by The Coalition for Advancing Freedom

The only way our American freedom will be sustained is for each generation to know, support and defend the principles upon which America was founded. These principles are the subject of the book “The 5000 Year Leap”. Therefore, CAF is offering three $1000 scholarships for high school seniors planning to go on to higher education.

“Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.” John Adams, Defense of the Constitutions, 1787

"Every member of the State ought diligently to read and to study the constitution of his country. . . . By knowing their rights, they will sooner perceive when they are violated and be the better prepared to defend and assert them." John Jay, Charge to the Grand Jury of Ulster County, September 9, 1777.
