The Fort Hood Military Family Member Scholarship Fund is an independent organization developed for the purpose of providing scholarships for deserving, eligible U.S. military family members. A special selection committee will score applications based on the student’s academic record, school and community activities, essay, and recommendations. Financial need is not considered.
Scholarship selections are determined in April and scholarship recipients will be notified via email no later than mid-May. Awarded scholarships must be used during the school year immediately following the award. The scholarship monies will be awarded upon receipt of a completed FHMFM Scholarship Letter and a letter of acceptance on official letterhead from the institutions of the student’s choice.
Scholarship recipients must register at the accredited institution of higher learning, at a minimum, as a part-time student with 6 credit hours. Scholarship Awards are not renewable. The review of applications by the Selection Committee is confidential and is made without regard to race, sex, religion or national origin. Eligibility applies to Active Duty, Retired and Deceased Military Member high school seniors and military spouses residing in Bell, Coryell, Lampasas, Travis, McLennan and Williamson counties in Texas.
