The Ft Knox Area Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) will award more than $12,000 in college scholarships to eligible high school seniors graduating from area schools and homeschool programs. The Chapter will award one $1,500 scholarship and eleven $1,000 grants.
Eligibility is limited to those who are family members of an active duty, Guard or Reserve service member; a 20-year or medically-retired or deceased active duty, Guard or Reserve service member; or the grandchild of a retired (living or deceased) active duty, Guard or Reserve service member. The service member’s rank or branch of service is not a factor.
“Our Chapter’s general membership contributes to the scholarship fund throughout the year so we can make college more affordable for a military child or grandchild. Since 2010, our Chapter has awarded over $52,000 in scholarships to 72 graduating High School Seniors,” according to Dick Ardisson, the Chapter’s Scholarship Committee chairman.
