To address the educational needs of the more than 100,000 Marine children who will reach college age in the next decade, we are committed to raising $100,000,000 by 2018 through our American Patriot’s Campaign.
Our Heroes Tribute Scholarship Programs for Children of the Fallen and Wounded provide special scholarship support—up to $40,000 over 4 years—to the children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen killed or injured in combat. Other scholarship initiatives honor and memorialize Marines and Navy Corpsmen and bring students together for the opportunity to connect with mentors and each other.
Each year, volunteers host more than 40 events around the country, the proceeds of which support scholarships for sons and daughters of Marines and Navy Corpsmen. Our events include gala dinners, golf tournaments, and “friend-raisers.” In 2013, our volunteer-driven events raised more than $10,000,000 in scholarship funding.
Runners from coast to coast lace up and hit the road in support of scholarships for the children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen. Our running teams pledge to raise funds for the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation while training for – and participating in – races nationwide.
Keeping faith with Marines and their families means staying connected locally. The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation supports a wide variety of activities through our network of regional campaigns. Scholarship Foundation committees are active in states, towns and communities large and small nationwide. Their a critical part of our mission and our boots on the ground in Marine communities coast to coast.
