Court Conkwright Memorial Scholarship

In honor of Court’s selfless service to our country, and in partnership with Edwin Goodman, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation has created the Court Conkwright Memorial Scholarship to honor the life and legacy of Courtland Curtis Conkwright. From this fund, scholarships will be awarded annually, to the children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen as they pursue their dreams of higher education. Court’s legacy will live on with each of these students. This memorial scholarship will enable these young students to grow and become successes in their own right. You can contribute to this effort via the form below to help us ensure this fund can award scholarships immediately. As Marines, this is how we truly live and demonstrate Semper Fidelis.

David McCallum

In Memoriam, David McCallum, 1933-2023

David McCallum was one of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation’s greatest champions. His brother-in-law, Marine Corporal George Whitney Carpenter, was killed in Vietnam in 1967. Determined to keep George’s legacy alive, David and his wife, Katherine, established a scholarship through MCSF in his name to directly benefit the children of Marines. We fondly recall David weaving MCSF into the script of NCIS episodes and thrilling the audience when he served as the Master of Ceremonies for the New York Leatherneck Ball. Thank you to all those who have contributed in David’s honor. We invite everyone to watch the NCIS episode dedicated to David which will air on CBS on Monday, February 19.
