Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation
The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation provides life-changing educational opportunities to the children of Marines. We award scholarships to the children of active duty Marines, veteran Marines and Navy Corpsmen who serve with them, with special consideration given to applicants whose parents have been killed or wounded in action.
The Scholarship Foundation also provides Heroes Tribute Scholarships of up to $30,000 over four years to children of Marines, and Navy Corpsmen serving with Marines, whose parents have been killed in combat since September 11, 2001.
Eligibility: Applicants must have a parent who is a Marine or a Navy Corpsman serving with Marines. Applicants must also be either high school graduates or enrolled at an accredited undergraduate/vocational/technical institution, whose family’s gross adjusted income is $91,000 or less, and whose GPA is at least 2.0. Grandchildren may also be eligible under limited circumstances.
