Being a Marine has it benefits. As a 501(c)3 organization, one of our primary reasons for fundraising is to award grants to qualified applicants sponsored by WMA members.
These grants may be used at any accredited college, university or college level trade school. If you or someone in your family has a Marine heritage they may qualify for a scholarship. Below are some of the guidelines:
a. WMA members may sponsor an unlimited number of applicants per year.
b. No individual is eligible to receive more than one (1) scholarship per academic year (with a maximum of two (2) lifetime awards).
c. Application period extends exclusively from 1 January through 31 March.
Applications can be filled in online. Print, gather all of your documentation, sign and send in as directed in the procedures. Be sure to print a copy for yourself. Take advantage of your Marine connections!
