The Marine Corps Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to the children of U.S. Marines and Navy Corps service members who have served with the Marines.
The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, now 50-years-old, has awarded scholarships to more than 30,000 students for use in meeting the costs of college or vocational school education.
This year more than 1,900 students in the United States received assistance at an average of over $3,000 per year. Currently, 16 CSU students are receiving the MCSF. It is the largest military scholarship benefactor in the nation.
A reception hosted by the CSU’s Office of the President on behalf of the MCSF will be held from 3-5 p.m. on Feb. 14 in the Grey Rock room of the Lory Student Center. Members of the Marine Corps community at CSU are invited, as well as current MCSF recipients and others who are dependent of Marine Corps veterans.
MCSF staff will be on hand to answer questions about the scholarship application process from students who could be potential recipients.
To be eligible, a student must be the son or daughter of a parent who is currently serving or who served previously and received an honorable discharge. Applications are being taken online until March 1, 2013, for the academic year 2013-2014. Complete information about opportunities, eligibility requirements and deadlines are available online.
