In 1999, the Memorial Foundation established a Merit-Based College Scholarship Program for the college bound minor, dependent children of Department employees who are graduating high school and going on to college. The principal criterion in this contest is academic performance, but we also consider extra-curricular achievement and seek to identify students with great potential for continued success. Since inception, over $2 million has been granted to these talented young people. These are the only grants not based on unforeseen catastrophic circumstances.
Applications will be accepted beginning February 1.
