Awards Available: See Description

  • Scholarship Description
  • Our mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to the children of military personnel who have been killed in the line of duty. Our goal is to bridge the gap in funding between available sources of grants and scholarships (i.e., VA Chapter 33 or 35, federal, state, local and private grants) and the total cost of college.

    We are dedicated to serving the families of service members from all branches of the armed forces who have died as a result of combat casualties, military training accidents, service-related illnesses, suicide, as well as other duty-related deaths as ruled by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

    Scholarships include, but are not limited to, assistance with: SAT/ACT prep and fees, college applications, AP exams, registration fees, tuition (in-state, out-of-state, public, & private), room and board, tutoring, study abroad, summer enrollment, undergraduate student loans, and other miscellaneous expenses. Retroactive scholarship funding may also be available for students, including college graduates, who have already paid out of pocket for college-related expenses.

    Our scholarship has no deadlines, no competitive application process, no required essays, no age limit for who we can assist, and scholarships are provided on a continuous basis throughout the year.

    Students are eligible for up to $6,250 in scholarship assistance per academic year; however, additional funding may be available based on current Foundation resources. Submission for funding does not guarantee approval. Students must apply for assistance as needed by contacting our Scholarship Team. Returning scholars must re-apply for scholarships at the end of each semester (or once final ‘term’ grades are posted) to receive assistance for the following enrollment period. Scholarship requests take approximately 3-4 weeks to process from receipt of all required documents.
    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
