​APPLY ANYTIME, NO DEADLINE

To provide college scholarships and educational counseling to the children of military personnel who have been killed in the line of duty. Our goal is to bridge the gap in funding between available sources of grants and scholarships (i.e., VA Chapter 33 or 35, federal, state, local and private grants) and the total cost of college. We hope to ensure that no child covered by our mission has to go out-of-pocket or take on loans to pay for college. 
Who do we serve?
Children – whether natural, by marriage or adoption – who have lost a parent in the line of military duty, during combat or peacetime. All branches (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard) and all components (active, reserve and guard) are covered. 
What expenses are covered?
Costs related to undergraduate education: tuition, room and board, books, fees, computers and living expenses. Students can be enrolled in either public or private institutions; colleges, universities and vocational schools are covered. We do not cover airfare to and from school, and funding cannot be applied to graduate-level education. 
How much does the organization provide to each student? 
There is no maximum amount, subject to the requirements described above. The award amounts are based on individual needs and our available funding. 
What documentation do I need to provide?
We realize the strain that surviving families endure, so we strive to make our process as simple, user-friendly and flexible as possible. Our staff can handle many of your needs over the phone. Typical documents needed include:The family enrollment which enters you into our system. 
  • A copy of the Casualty Report (DD1300)
  • Class schedule
  • Information on your VA benefits
  • Transcript with GPA
  • Documentation of expenses 
What is the scholarship award process?  
Our scholarship committee is streamlined. Decisions are made throughout the year.

Student loan debt has grown over 300% in the past 8 years, placing more of a financial burden across students nationwide. According to the U.S. Department of Education this affects minority students disproportionately: statistically they borrow more in student loans, are more likely to drop out due to problems securing funding, and are left with higher levels of student debt once they graduate. Fortunately, there are opportunities available for minority students. To help avoid unnecessary debt our team has created a guide to financial aid for minority students.

This guide answers the big questions, such as:
• Where can I find minority-specific financial aid?
• How do I minimize my student loan debt?
• How do I maximize my chances for winning scholarships?
