The deadline to apply for one of the 2016 Scholarships for Military Children, each worth $2,000, is Feb. 12. Applications, including the required essay, must be received at a military commissary by the close of business that day. They should be hand-delivered, but if that is not convenient, they can be sent to a commissary via the U.S. Postal Service or FEDEX/UPS. They cannot be faxed or emailed. At least one scholarship will be awarded at every commissary location with qualified applicants. Applications are available in commissaries worldwide and online at the Scholarship Programs of the Fisher House Foundation website. If students have questions about the scholarship program application, they should call Scholarship Managers at 856-616-9311.
