USARA Legacy Scholarship Program
PURPOSE: The USARA Legacy Scholarship is a memorial to selfless service and contributions made to our country by USARA members; awards are presented in their honor. The scholarships provide an opportunity to provide financial assistance to qualified dependents of USARA members in furthering their education. The Scholarship Committee seeks to award scholarships to applicants displaying the potential for a degree in higher education, whether it is technical, university or professional. Each year the USARA Scholarship Committee evaluates the scholarship applicants and selects the most outstanding submissions to be awarded a USARA Legacy Scholarship.
SCOPE: Provide financial grants to students who are or plan to attend an accredited college, university, or higher technical trade school. Scholarship awards funds are to assist with academic expenses at the attending University/School and will be disbursed directly to the University/School to assist with tuition, books, fees, supplies and room and board.
FUNDING: The scholarship fund is supported by voluntary donations from USARA members and public donations. The number of scholarships to be awarded annually will vary. However, the scholarships will not exceed $3,000 per awardee and will be no less than $1,000. USARA also diverts dollars from the general fund to the USARA Legacy Scholarship Fund as required.
ELIGIBILITY: Applicants must be a qualified dependent of a USARA member.
Qualified Dependent is defined as an unmarried child; grandchild or great-grandchild of a USARA member (included those legally adopted) who is under the age of 23 for the entire academic year.
USARA Member (scholarship sponsor) in this case is defined as an individual who at the time of scholarship application has been a Regular Member (Annual or Life) of USARA for a minimum of one year; or a deceased Regular Member of USARA.
Applicants that meet the eligibility requirements for the USARA legacy scholarship are also eligible to compete for The First Lieutenant Dimitri A. del Castillo Scholarship.
Application Process: All applications will be processed in accordance with the annual Application Process Schedule.
