With the school year coming to a close, now is a great time to apply for a few more scholarships before college starts up in the fall. College and college-bound children of military members are invited to apply for $1,000 scholarships through Homefront America’s American Patriot Freedom Scholarship Program. A total of twenty-five scholarships will be given.
Applicants must submit an essay of 500 words or less on one of four topics:
- “Why I love my country”
- “Challenge(s) in my life and how I overcame it/them”
- “Of all that my dad/mom have done for me, I am most thankful for …”
- “My number one American hero.”
Essays will be judged on originality, length, relationship to topic, grammar and spelling.
Scholarship Eligibility. Persons ages 16-21 are eligible. They must be children of active-duty, disabled or fallen service members, retirees and activated or deployed guardsmen and reservists.
Applications are available to download at: Homefront America.
Deadline for applying is May 30, 2008.
Good luck to all who apply!
