The amount of each award varies annually. Award amounts are based on the student's individual circumstances. Once enrollment is verified, the scholarship check will be mailed directly to recipient's school. This award is renewable if the recipient shows proof of satisfactory academic progress (maintaining a grade point average of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale) and that he/she is still enrolled full time as an undergraduate at an accredited educational/technical institution. Current scholarship recipients can submit their renewal information on the Freedom Alliance website.
The number of awards offered varies annually. Last year, 168 scholarships were awarded. All applicants who meet the qualifications will receive an award.
The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund was the vision of Freedom Alliance founders Lt. Col. Oliver North, USMC (Ret.) and the late Lt. Gen. Edward Bronars, USMC. It exists to honor the bravery and sacrifice of U.S. military personnel who have been killed or permanently disabled in an operational mission or training exercise. Freedom Alliance will notify students of their individual decision by mail. If the student is approved for a scholarship, he/she will then be required to complete, with his/her school's financial aid office, three enrollment verification forms.
Applications are available on the Freedom Alliance (FA) website. The application form must be completed online. After completion and submission, the student will be instructed to print a copy of the ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
