Scholarship Description

The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation provides financial assistance in the form of scholarships to deserving sons and daughters of current or former United States Marines in their pursuit of higher education. We also provide a very limited number of scholarships to children of Navy Corpsmen who serve or have served with Marines.

One-year scholarships (ranging from $1,000 -$10,000) are awarded annually and are limited to undergraduate studies at accredited educational and/or technical institutions. Our "Heroes Tribute Scholarships" (of up to $20,000 over four years) are given to the children of Marines and the children of Navy Corpsmen serving with the Marines whose parent is killed in the ongoing Global War on Terror. Current scholarship recipients must reapply each year and are limited to a total of four awards.

Applicants must be:

The son/daughter of one of the following:
* An active duty or reserve U.S. Marine
* A U.S. Marine who has received an Honorable Discharge, Medical Discharge, or was killed while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps
* A U.S. Navy Corpsman who has served with the U.S. Marine Corps and has received an Honorable Discharge, Medical Discharge, or was killed while serving in the U.S. Navy

OR

The grandchild of one of the following:
* A U.S. Marine who served with the 4th Marine Division during World War II and is/was a member of their association
* A U.S. Marine who served with the 6th Marine Division during World War II and is/was a member of their association

Scholarships are targeted at eligible applicants from families with a maximum adjusted gross income of $61,000 or less. The limit increases if siblings also apply. For the purpose of determining eligibility, non-taxable allowances (such as BAH) received by military members on active duty are NOT included in
