About the Supply Corps Foundation Scholarship Program

The Navy Supply Corps Foundation scholarship applications are available online beginning in December each year. A limited number of four-year scholarships are awarded along with one-year scholarships.

The scholarship program, which was the basis for the Foundation's formation three decades ago, was established to provide children of qualifying Supply Corps personnel financial assistance to pursue a college education. Today, any family member (child, grandchild or spouse) of a qualifying Supply Corps officer and child or spouse of a supply enlisted member (active duty, reservist, or retired) is eligible for consideration to receive financial assistance for undergraduate studies at an accredited two or four-year post-secondary school institution.

The application deadline for scholarships is the beginning of March each year. The application consists of three primary components: academic performance records, extracurricular activities, and two short essay questions. The Scholarship selection process is simple. Identifying information is redacted, and judges look at the overall value of each candidate. The Scholarship Committee convenes a special board consisting of one person each from the Active Duty, Reserve, Retired, Enlisted, and spouse communities. The Board individually reviews and critiques each application and then meets as a virtual board to collectively select the best candidates. Applicants are considered for awards on the basis of character, leadership, academic performance, and financial need. Scholarship winners are notified by the end of May. Scholarship funds are distributed to the awardee’s institution for the upcoming academic year.

The Scholarship Program has steadily grown over the past three decades, due in large part to the generosity and efforts of regional chapters, spouses' clubs, and individual Supply Corps officers. In 1971, six one-year $250 scholarships were offered; today, the Foundation's goal is to award $200,000 in scholarships each year. Since 1971, the Foundation has awarded 2,578 scholarships valued in excess of $6,153,000.

The Foundation also funds $20,000 memorial scholarships (given over 4 years) for the children of Supply Corps officers who have died while on active duty.

Memorial Scholarship Fund

Taking Care of Our Own” is a significant part of the mission of the Navy Supply Corps Foundation. One of the ways we do this for each other is through our Memorial Scholarship fund, which provides college tuition assistance for the minor children of Supply Corps officers who die while on Active Duty. The Foundation contributes $20,000.00 to establish a scholarship fund for each of the minor children of a Supply Corps Officer who dies while on Active Duty. The scholarship fund is maintained as a restricted account within our corpus and is available for disbursement when the child is ready to attend college. The fund is also set up so that individuals can contribute to the fund.

The program applies to Active Duty Supply Corps Officers, any Reserve Supply Corps Officer in the following categories: Mobilization, Active Duty for Special Work (ADSW), Active Duty for Training (ADT), Annual Training (AT) and Inactive Duty for Training (IDT).
