Since 1775, Marines have selflessly served America, and for over 56 years the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation has honored this service by educating their children. The privately-funded, 501(c)(3) organization provides scholarships for post-high school education to deserving sons and daughters of Marines with particular attention given to children whose parent has been killed or wounded in action.

Founded in 1962, The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is the nation’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children. For more than 57 years, they’ve been providing access to affordable education for the children of Marine and Navy Corpsman attending post-high school, under-graduate and career technical education programs.

In 1962, Brigadier General Martin F. Rockmore USMC (Ret.) learned of a Marine WWII Medal of Honor who was financially unable to send his child to college. General Rockmore was inspired to create an organization that honored Marines by empowering their children through education.

After an initial fundraising event, which sent that one Medal of Honor recipient's child to college, the Scholarship Foundation grew thanks to an enormous volunteer effort. Since that time, over 40,000 scholarships valued at nearly $125,000,000 have been given to deserving students, including 2,300 for the 2018-2019 academic year. 

Today, the Scholarship Foundation has never been more relevant. The ever-increasing cost of a post-high school education has significantly outpaced the salary earned by military servicemembers creating a real need for higher education financial assistance for the children of America's Marines

These families have endured frequent, destabilizing moves, modest incomes and, in some cases, the disability or loss of a parent. They should not have to bear the burden of not knowing how they will afford post-high school educations for their children. 

The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation delivers a meaningful and lasting expression of gratitude to Marine Corps families through its longstanding commitment to Honoring Marines by Educating Their Children. Learn more HERE
