Scholarships available for military children

To show gratitude on behalf of the American people, the Freedom Alliance is offering aid to the children of the heroes serving in the U.S. armed forces in the form of college scholarships.

If you or someone you know is the son or daughter of a service member who has sacrificed life or limb, then the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund is available to help alleviate the costs of college. Over $3 million has been awarded to hundreds of Freedom Alliance Scholarship recipients since 2002.

An eligible applicant must be the dependent son or daughter of a U.S. soldier, sailor, airman, Marine or Guardsman who has been killed or permanently disabled (100 percent VA disability rating) in an operational mission or training accident, or who is currently classified as a prisoner of war (POW) or missing in action (MIA). They must also be a high school senior or registered as a full-time undergraduate student and under the age of 26.

To learn more about the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund and/or to apply, visit or call 800-475-6620. The application deadline is July 31.

The mission of Freedom Alliance is to advance the American heritage of freedom by honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States, and promoting a strong national defense.
