The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund:

The mission of Freedom Alliance is to advance the American heritage of freedom by honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States, and promoting a strong national defense.

One of the ways we carry out our mission is by providing financial assistance for higher education in the form of Freedom Alliance Scholarships.

These scholarships are awarded to the deserving sons and daughters of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Guardsmen whose parent died or is permanently disabled (100% VA Rating) as a result of a combat mission or training accident which caused an immediate inability to continue serving.

Scholarships are awarded annually to full-time students enrolled in undergraduate studies at an accredited educational/technical institution.

Scholarships are renewable for up to three years, providing that the recipient remains a full-time student and maintains a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale).

How to Apply:

Students applying for a Freedom Alliance Scholarship should first review the eligibility requirements, then complete the digital application.
