Applications for the Corvias Foundation’s 2014 Our Future Scholarships and 2014 Our Family Educational Grants are now available.
The foundation is committed to supporting military Families in the pursuit of higher education.
“Each year we are impressed with the quality of our applicants and their educational ambitions,” said Maria Montalvo, executive director of Corvias Foundation. “We are humbled to serve military Families, and proud to help them reach their full educational potential.”
Since its founding in 2006, Corvias Foundation has awarded more than $4.5 million in scholarships and grants to children and spouses of active-duty servicemembers. At Fort Bragg, the foundation has awarded $1.8 million to 106 recipients.
Applications for Our Future Scholarships must be submitted by February 13, 2014, and will be awarded to high school seniors with plans of attending a four-year university or college in the amount of up to $50,000 each.
Corvias Foundation will select 10 children of active-duty servicemembers at Forts Meade, Bragg, Polk, Rucker, Riley, Sill, and Aberdeen Proving Ground based on merit and need.
In addition, as a result of Corvias’ innovative new partnership with the U.S. Air Force’s Continental Group, children at Edwards Air Force Base, Eglin Air Force Base, Eielson Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field, McConnell Air Force Base and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base will be eligible to apply for the scholarships as well.
Recipients of a scholarship, will be notified by April 10, 2014.
Applications for 2014 Our Family Educational Grants must be submitted by May 8, 2014. Grants are given in the amount of up to $5,000 to spouses of active-duty servicemembers at the installations and bases listed above.
Applicants may be in any stage of the educational process. Recipients of a grant will be notified by July 10, 2014.
Applications and all necessary paperwork for both the Our Future Scholarship and Our Family Educational Grant must be submitted by the due date in order to be considered. Those chosen can begin using their scholarship or grant in the fall of 2014. Families do not have to reside in on-post housing in order to qualify for scholarships or grants. Eligible servicemembers stationed at these 13 Army and Air Force installations can serve in any branch of the military.
