Future Military Officer Scholarship Program

Future Military Officer Scholarship Program

The Charleston Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) established the Future Military Officer Scholarship program through hundreds of gifts from members of the Charleston Chapter of the MOAA in 1997.  This program is a fully tax deductible, member supported, program.

The Future Military Officer Scholarship program provides annual scholarships to college-bound (or in-college) students whose current registered address is in the 294-- zip code area.  Scholarship recipients must enroll in a college ROTC program and intend to enter military service as a military officer.  Scholarships are renewable for four years of college, provided certain conditions are met. One new $500 scholarship is given annually.
Applications open annually in mid-January with a deadline in mid-March.  More information and application materials can be accessed at Coastal Community Foundation.  Students wishing to be considered for the Future Military Officer Scholarship must complete Coastal Community Foundation's General Scholarship Program application.
