High School

The Four-Year Scholarship

This scholarship is intended for high school students who plan to attend a four-year college program. Scholarships are based on a student’s merit and grades—not financial need. It will allow you to have a civilian and military experience unlike any other, allowing you to concentrate on your education and not how you are going to pay for it.
