Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation

Founded in 1962, The Marine Corps Scholarship
Founded in 1962, we are the nation’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children, driven by our mission to Honor Marines by Educating their Children.  For 54 years, we’ve provided access to education for the children of Marine and Navy Corpsman attending post-high school, undergraduate and career technical education programs. In that time, we have kept our promise to fund 100 percent of eligible applicants, awarding more than 37,000 scholarships worth nearly $110 million – and demand for our scholarships only continues to grow.  Our scholars are motivated to succeed, and 90 percent graduate or are on track to graduate, reflecting the values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.

These same qualities motivate our commitment to maintaining the public trust we have earned throughout our history with responsible organizational and fiscal management. We pride ourselves on financial transparency, our low overhead percentage and prudent management of investments. Only 5% of total revenue is spent on general and administrative expenses. The Scholarship Foundation is among the most trusted investments in our field—with an A+ from the Better Business Bureau and 4/4 stars for accountability and transparency from Charity Navigator.
