Homefront America Offers Twenty-Five $1,000 Scholarships for Military Dependent Children

Since 2006, Homefront America's American Patriot Freedom Scholarship Program has helped to fund scholarships to assist our military dependent children with their tuition, fees, supplies, books, and room/board expenses.

With the help of the W. Daniel Tate family and Sara's Hope, the program will again award twenty-five (25) $1,000 scholarships to benefit military dependent children this coming June.

"The organization is extending its application date to allow the children stationed at military bases abroad additional time to submit their applications," said Arthur Hasselbrink, Founder and President of Homefront America.

Qualified Applicants:
Military dependent children of active duty stationed stateside and abroad, retirees, and disabled or fallen service members are eligible to apply. This includes activated or deployed Guardsmen and Reservists.

What is required?
Applicants must submit an essay of 500 words or less on one of four pre-approved topics. Essays will be judged on their originality, length, relationship to topic, grammar and spelling.
