The Scholarships for Military Children Program was created in 2000 to honor graduating high school seniors or students enrolled in college. The scholarship program is open to children of U.S. Armed Services members, including active duty, retirees, guard/reserves, and children of deceased military personnel.
Applicants must maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average, participate in school and community activities, demonstrate leadership qualities and write an essay.
Manufactures and organizations that do business with the commissary system fund the scholarships. Fullmore’s and Jackson’s scholarships were funded by Pactiv/E-Z Foil.
