Scholarships for Military Children!

The 2016 program is open! Submit your application to your commissary no later than February 12, 2016.

This scholarship was created in recognition of the contributions of military families to the readiness of the fighting force and to celebrate the role of the commissary in the military family community. It is the intent of the program that a scholarship funded through contributions be awarded annually for each commissary operated by the Defense Commissary Agency worldwide. The Fisher House Foundation is honored to be involved with the Scholarships for Military Children Program. 

A total of 700 scholarship grants, each for $2,000, will be awarded for school year 2016-17. There will be at least one recipient selected at every commissary location where qualified applications are received, and additional recipients will be selected based on a prorate basis, so more applicants will be selected from those commissaries with larger numbers of applicants.
