How do I apply for MOAA's Educational Assistance?
Do you want to make a difference in a military child's life? Consider a tax-deductible donation to the MOAA Scholarship Fund. Because all administrative expenses-salaries, office supplies, advertising, and other non-educational support are paid from MOAA's general fund, 100% of your contribution will go to students in the form of interest-free loans and grants, not one penny goes to overhead.
