Deadline for Scholarships for Military Children is Feb. 24

The Scholarships for Military Children Program for the 2020-21 school year is underway. The program is administered by Fisher House Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps service members and their families and is funded primarily through the generosity of manufacturers and suppliers whose products are sold at military commissaries worldwide.

For scholarship year 2020-21, Fisher House Foundation will award 500 scholarship grants of $2,000 each. The application, including essay question, is available for download from the Scholarships for Military Children website: www.militaryscholar.org.

Applicants should ensure that they, as well as their sponsor, are enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) database and have a current U.S. Uniformed Services Privilege and Identification Card. The applicant must also be planning to attend or already be attending an accredited college or university, full time, in the fall of 2020 or be enrolled in a program of studies designed to transfer directly into a four-year program.
