The Nation’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children.

A Legacy of Honor

A Legacy of Honor

More than 55 years. Nearly 50,000 scholarships.
We will leave no eligible student of a Marine family behind.

The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation was established to honor the service and sacrifice of Marines and their families. That’s why we are grateful for your tax-deductible donations. As our Nations’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation helps cover the cost of attending post-high school, undergraduate, and career and technical education programs. Every gift has a significant life-changing impact. With your support, we can make sure that no Marine family is left behind.


The MCSF has awarded $155 million in scholarships to honor the families of those who have served.

“My mother and father grew up in Mexico, but I was born in California at Camp Pendleton. I was about five when my father, Sergeant Edgar Sanchez USMC, returned home from his service in Iraq. My father’s career as a hydraulics mechanic inspired me to want to study Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University. My scholastic research is focused on the customization of 3D-printed prosthetics. I also helped design drone attachments to assist with reforestation. As a first-generation college student, support from the MCSF helped make college a reality. I feel the best way I can show my gratitude is to use my skills to help engineer a better world for others.”
