What do I need from my sponsor to apply?
- You will need documentation stating that your sponsor served in the US Navy in Aviation Commands for a minimum of 6-8 years*. You may use a ODC, DD-214, Electronic Training Jacket or Fit-reps. Please see our application tab for more detailed information.
What criteria do you use to select winners?
- We have 6 equally weighted categories: scholastic achievement, extra-curricular activities, work/internships, community service, recommendations and essay. Financial need may be considered if the FAFSA is submitted. We are looking for well rounded students.
Can I receive a scholarship if I already get financial aid?
- For Fall of 2020, most scholarships are $4,200 and some are renewable. Scholarships can only be used for tuition charged by the college. If you receive partial funding through state grants or other scholarships that reduce your unmet tuition need to less than your scholarship award, your original award may be reduced so it will not exceed your unmet need for tuition. Awards may not be used to cover other unmet needs such as, but not limited to, room, board, transportation, books, health fees, etc.
- If you receive a full scholarship or service academy appointment, you may not receive the scholarship.
