I am a Marine Corps Veteran honorably discharged in 2017. I am currently attending Rutgers University pursuing a degree in kinesiology. I hope to continue on to medical school and become a sports medicine physician. I am applying for this scholarship with the hopes of making this dream a reality.

I have three sons in college. I am a Marine Corps Veteran. My salary as an Educational Assistant is only 14,00 per year. I would appreciate any help in scholarship funds for my boys.

I am applying for this scholarship because I am currently active duty Marine Corps living in Okinawa, Japan with a military family history of being honorably discharged.
