Scholarships Program

Our scholarship program was developed to give local JrROTC programs a tool to entice students into JrROTC where they would be introduced to JrROTC and the military. Hopefully after their JrROTC experience, they would continue their education in ROTC, a military academy or join the military.

You have seen from our newsletters that the numbers of these students who go to ROTC and the Service Academies this program has been successful. One this year’s winners, Travis Riley visited during our August luncheon.

To ensure we select the correct students, we have weighted the score sheet we use to determine winners in favor of the students who are in leadership in JrROTC and have a good academic record. We do this to try to ensure your donations aren’t wasted on a student that drops out or doesn’t attend college. We also have the student’s scholarship account set up with each college so that we receive any unspent funds from the college if the student drops out before they complete their first year. So far, we haven’t received a refund except for a student decided to go to a service academy vs college. .

We would like to thank our scholarship committee for their diligent work in choosing our scholarship winners from this year's highly qualified applicants and our members for their continued financial support. Most of the students took college classes while in High School, were highly involved in school, Jr ROTC and volunteer activities. They are invited to one of our meetings to tell us a little about themselves and their goals.

We are especially thankful to the members of our chapter who through their generousity make this program possible.
