Need Some Money for School??


Alrighty kids, listen up! There is a lot of money up for grabs… all you have to do is give a little elbow grease and do a little digging.  I did a lot of the dirty work for you — check out these military scholarships!  Many of the deadlines are right around the corner in February and March!

Even if you’re not thinking about college money for your junior higher, there is a really big scholarship program called the VFW’s Patriot’s Pen which is geared toward them!  I know that trying to save up money and pay for school can seem like an uphill battle. However, there are plenty of scholarships for military personnel, children of military service-members including parents, grandparents and more. Some of these scholarships are unit specific, so please check them out to see if you qualify. Remember that these are the most general scholarships available and that several smaller Marine Corps organizations or other military organizations offer state by state scholarships as well.
