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.

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.
