The Folded Flag Foundation offers scholarships to qualifying spouses of fallen heroes and their children. The College or Technical/Trade School Scholarship is for college-bound spouses and their children (this includes undergraduate degrees, graduate programs and trade/vocational schools), and it covers tuition and fees, books, computers, living expenses (to include child care for students with young children), tutoring, test preparation services and career preparation expenses (internships, resume writing workshops, interview preparation training, etc.).
The Folded Flag Foundation also accepts applications for summer activities or summer school. There will be a limit of no more than 3 activities, they need to be in person and not virtual. There is also a cap of $2,500. Summer awards have no impact on any fall/spring awards.
Eligible recipients must be the spouse (all ages) or child (under the age of 26) of:
*A member of the U.S. military who died as a result of hostile action or in an accident related to U.S. combat operations.
*An employee of the U.S. government who died as a result of hostile action or in an accident related to U.S. combat operations.
For individuals applying for a summer scholarship, applications are due by mid-April; otherwise, applications are due in May. Dollar amounts for the College or Technical/Trade School Scholarship will vary. Applicants will be notified by July if they are awarded a scholarship. Applications open on March 1 every year.
