  • Scholarship Description
  • Dependent unmarried children under age 21 (23 if enrolled as a full-time student) of active duty personnel, reserve/guard and retired military members, or survivors of deceased members, may apply for this scholarship. Dependent children of NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), Public Health Service, other federal or military related agencies or activities, or DoD civilian employees are not eligible unless they meet the above requirement.

    Applicants should ensure that they, as well as their sponsor, are currently enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) database and that they have a current ID card.

    Applicants must be enrolled, or planning to enroll, in a full-time undergraduate degree program at an accredited college or university in the fall term of the upcoming academic year. Applicants who have earned an undergraduate degree or who are enrolled in a graduate degree program are not eligible. All applicants must also have a minimum 3.0 GPA - both high school and college students. No scholarship will be awarded for those pursuing an associate; second undergraduate or graduate school degree. Students attending a community or junior college must be enrolled in a program of studies designed to allow the student to transfer directly into a four-year program. Applicants who receive an appointment to one of the U.S. Military Academies (or affiliated preparatory schools) or are awarded a full scholarship at any accredited U.S. post-secondary institution of higher education are not eligible to receive funds from this program. A full scholarship is usually defined as one that provides for payment of tuition, books, lab fees, and other related expenses.

My father is a retired Navy Combat Veteran who was in Desert Shield/Storm, Enduring Freedom, Noble Eagle and Global War on Terror. He retired in 2010 and I am so proud of him and all who have served and are serving.
