So, you're a military brat, graduation is just months away (seriously, it's March) and you've decided to be a civilian. Need cash? Sure you do! What college bound, non-military contracted kid doesn't? I say this with a smile because this was certainly me!
If you fit this category, check out Homefront America. They're currently accepting scholarship applications from eligible military dependent children.
They give away the American Patriot Freedom Scholarship to "dependents 17 to 21 years old who plan to pursue a degree from an accredited college, university, technical or vocational school in the fall of 2009 or spring of 2010."
They're generous - a total of 25 winners will receive $1,000 scholarships each. So start filling out those applications (visit www.oohrah-usa.org)and get them postmarked by April 24. The lucky winners will be notified mid-May.
Don't forget to check out what scholarships are also available to you through on-base facilities and organizations such as the commissary and the wives's clubs. They're also generous as well and have a smaller competition pools since they focus on individual bases versus military brats worldwide.
Good luck future graduates!
