About the Supply Corps Foundation Scholarship Program
The Navy Supply Corps Foundation scholarship applications are provided online beginning in December each year. A limited number of four-year scholarships are awarded along with one-year scholarships.
2015-2016 Scholarship Winners, recurring winners, and Memorial Scholarships awarded.
The application deadline for scholarships are set for a date in March each year. The Scholarship Committee convenes a special board to choose scholarship awardees and winners are notified by the end of May. Applicants are considered for awards on the basis of character, leadership, academic performance, and financial need.
The Scholarship Program has steadily grown over the past three decades, due in large part to the generosity and efforts of regional chapters, spouses' clubs, and individual Supply Corps officers. In 1971, six one-year $250 scholarships were offered; today, the Foundation's goal is to award $200,000 in scholarships each year. Since 1971, the Foundation has awarded 2,102 scholarships valued in excess of $4,443,000.
The Foundation also funds one-year $2,500 memorial scholarships for the children of Supply Corps officers who have died while on active duty.
Memorial Scholarship Fund
Taking Care of Our Own” is a significant part of the mission of the Navy Supply Corps Foundation. One of the ways we do this for each other is through our Memorial Scholarship fund, which provides college tuition assistance for the minor children of Supply Corps officers who die while on Active Duty. The Foundation contributes $10,000.00 to establish a scholarship fund for each of the minor children of a Supply Corps Officer who dies while on Active Duty. The scholarship fund is maintained as a restricted account within our corpus and is available for disbursement when the child is ready to attend college. The fund is also set up so that individuals can contribute to the fund.
The program applies to Active Duty Supply Corps Officers, any Reserve Supply Corps Officer in the following categories: Mobilization, Active Duty for Special Work (ADSW), Active Duty for Training (ADT), Annual Training (AT) and Inactive Duty for Training (IDT).
