The Scholarships for Military Children Program was initiated in 2000 to award scholarships to graduating high-school seniors or college-enrolled students. The scholarship program is open to qualified sons and daughters of members of the U.S. armed services.
Applicants for the 2014 program were required to maintain a minimum 3.0 grade-point average, participate in voluntary school and community activities, demonstrate leadership qualities, and write an essay.
Manufacturers and organizations that do business with the commissary system funded the scholarships with money ordinarily used for various other contests and promotions. Street’s scholarship was funded by Procter & Gamble.
