The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Scholarship Fund was established in 1948 to provide educational assistance for children of military families. It is based on one of the Association's founding principals that "education is the cornerstone of a strong Democracy". It is supported by donations and bequests from MOAA chapters, members, corporations, and others.
Interest-Free Loan and Grant Program provides interest-free loans and grants to students (under age 24) who are children of former, currently serving, or retired commissioned or warrant officers (Regular, Reserve or Guard) and to children of currently serving or retired enlisted military personnel (Regular, Reserve or Guard), for up to 5 years of undergraduate education at an accredited 2 or 4-year college or university of their choice.
The American Patriot Scholarship provides grants to students (under age 24) whose military parent - officer or enlisted - died while in active service (Regular, Reserve or Guard) to our nation, for up to 5 years of undergraduate education at an accredited 2 or 4-year college or university of their choice.
Do you want to make a difference in a military child's life? Consider a tax-deductible donation to The Scholarship Fund. Because all administrative expenses-salaries, office supplies, advertising, and other non-educational support are paid from MOAA's general fund, 100% of your contribution will go to students in the form of interest-free loans and grants, not one penny goes to overhead.
The MOAA Scholarship Fund is a non-profit, charitable organization incorporated in Virginia and declared tax-exempt by the Internal Revenue Service under §501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Its tax identification number is 54-1659039. We are committed to demonstrating the highest standards of public accountability and stewardship of donor’s gifts.

Scholarship awards are dependent on the funds available each year. For the 2015-2016 academic year, students may receive a scholarship award up to $10,000. Any amount paid to a student by the branch of the armed services of the United States during an academic year for which the student receives a Texas Armed Services Scholarship will be deducted from the total scholarship award distributed. A student could receive less money each year, contingent on the funding available for up to five years. Texas law does not allow a student to receive more than $15,000 per year.
