Did you know that the Scholarship Foundation accepts applications for CTE scholarships all year? Scholarships that help students like Brady pursue their dreams. Studying at Mid-State Technical College, Brady intends to become a master electrician. He told us how dual structure of his apprenticeship program – working alongside a master electrician in addition to classroom work – appeals to his desire to work with his hands and develop the skills he will need.

Today we wish fair winds and following seas to our President and CEO, General Robert Ruark USMC (Ret.). During his four years of leadership at the Scholarship Foundation, General Ruark put the organization on a path to continued success and strength with the development of a strategic plan that will guide the organization for years to come. During last year’s unpreceded circumstances, his steady hand guided critical initiatives to ensure that no child of a Marine in-need was left behind and that our staff remained safe and healthy. Most importantly, General Ruark oversaw the awarding of over 12,000 scholarships valued at nearly $43 million during his time at the Scholarship Foundation.

Thank you, General Ruark for your many contributions to the Scholarship Foundation. We know that your commitment to Marines and their families will never waiver. You can learn more about the next phase of leadership at the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation here: http://ow.ly/XcGg50FlNrT

Carol Tharp and I Gave $25 to the Marine Corps Scholarship -Program And would Like to Challenge Our Friends & Relatives to Follow Suit !
I just donated $100 to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation in the name of my cousin Lt. Col. George Finnerty USMC (ret) who passed away on October 22, 2020. Would you please notify his family of the donation. Thank you.
I just wanted to thank the Marine Corps Scholarship foundation staff and donors. My daughter received a scholarship and it made her very proud to get some recognition from a foundation that has the name Marine corps on it. She has always been proud of the military tradition in our family. I served in the Marine corps during Desert Storm and My father served in the Corps in Viet Nam . My Father died recently and one of the last things i showed him before he passed was the congratulations text message that my Daughter received from this foundation. He did not know that the Marine Corps Scholarship foundation existed. He was very proud of her and excited that this foundation exists i was very proud of her and proud that that this foundation exists. Most importantly she was proud. It was a special moment for us thank you. Semper Fidelis
I have already donated 250.00 $
