Military Scholarships

Military scholarships are available for members of the military and their families. Most organizations that sponsor these scholarships want to honor those individuals who have fought and defended our country, whether it was in the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, or Air Force. Providing scholarships for military personnel, their spouses, and children is a way to help them with their education costs and say thanks for their bravery.
