    FYI. Military Officers Association of America educational assistance program.

    From the email I received:
    "Do you know a military child looking for funds for college for the 2016-2017 school year? The MOAA Scholarship Fund Educational Assistance Program application for the 2016-2017 school year is now available on our website at The deadline to apply is noon (EST) on March 1, 2016.

    Students can apply for the interest-free loans and grants which are awarded annually for up to five years of undergraduate study, or until a student graduates.

    The MOAA Scholarship Fund was established in 1948 to provide educational assistance for children of military families. Eligibility guidelines include:

    •Students under age 24 who are children of former, currently serving or retired commissioned or warrant officers, and children of currently serving or retired enlisted military personnel, are eligible to apply.

    •Graduating high school seniors or full-time college students working toward their first undergraduate degree. If a child served in a uniformed service before completing college, however, the maximum age for eligibility will be increased by the number of years he or she served, up to five years.

    •Qualified students with a GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale are considered for selection based on their scholastic ability and participation in extracurricular and community activities, as well as financial need.

    The local chapters of MOAA also sponsor scholarships. Our DD has received $2000 scholarships for them 2 years running now which she uses towards Room and Board since her NROTC scholarship does not cover it.
