Designated Scholarships

A Designated Scholarship is a scholarship named in memory or honor of a loved one, friend, colleague, organization, or in your own name. The minimum donation for a Designated Scholarship is $25,000. The student selected to receive the Designated Scholarship receives both a $500 grant and an interest-free loan.  As long as the student reapplies for the loan and maintains their academic standing, they will receive the Designated Scholarship for up to 5 years.


Each donor receives information about his or her Designated Scholar.  Each Designated Scholar is required to correspond with and thank their donor at least once.  A list of all new Designated Scholars and their donors is published annually in the November edition of the Military Officer magazine. 


Donors establishing a Designated Scholarship are eligible for membership in the Designated Scholar Society.  They may also be included in our online “Faces of Donors” webpage.
