The MG James Ursano Scholarship Program is a need based scholarship program established to assist children of Army Soldiers in obtaining their first undergraduate degree. Applicants must reapply each year and may receive assistance for up to four (4) academic years as long as they meet the eligibility criteria.
-Dependent children, stepchildren or legally adopted children or a ward of Army soldiers on active duty, retired, or deceased while on active duty or after retirement

-The children of Gray Area Retirees are also eligible
-Unmarried for the entire academic year

To be a dependent, the student must:
-Be under the age of 23 (eligibility ends at the end of the semester/term in which the student reaches their 23rd birthday. Example - turning 23 in December would mean the scholarship would be awarded for fall term only)
-Be registered in DEERS
-Remain unmarried for the entire academic year
-Not be a member of the National Guard, Reserves, or other military branch
