Military Scholarship Opportunity

October 03, 2013 | Kate Horrell

I really hate to be a cut-and-paste blogger, but this military scholarship information received by SpouseBUZZ is so well written that there is no sense in trying to change it:

At the Liljegren Law Group, we understand how important the military is to our way of life. Founding attorney Scott Liljegren began his legal career in the Navy’s JAG Corps and developed a close personal connection with the people he worked with.

To say thank you, the Liljegren Law Group has created the Military Family Scholarship to help our servicemen and women and their families who are continuing their education.

To apply, write a 400-500 word essay on how the military has helped prepare you for college. Whether it was through active duty, growing up in a military family, or being strong for your family while your spouse was deployed. Entries should be emailed to: scholarship@liljegrenlaw.com

The Liljegren Law Group will choose 2 winners and award each a $500 scholarship. One chosen by the firm, the other chosen by the people. The scholarship can be used for any school related expenses, such as tuition and books.

Participants must meet the following criteria:

Enrolled at an accredited high school, college, or university in the U.S.
Enrolled at the undergraduate level or your final year of high school
Age seventeen (17) years or older
Must be a Military member, veteran, or have a parent or spouse who is or was in the military
Carry a status of “Good Standing” – i.e. currently enrolled
Maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 3.0 (or equivalent)

Submission must be received by June 5, 2014

There you go – open to service members, veterans, spouses and kids, relatively loose requirements, and can be used for expenses such as books.  What a military scholarship opportunity!  Please let me know if you apply and especially if any of you are selected.

Good luck!
