Mission Statement: The
mission of the Foundation is to provide college
scholarships to the sons and daughters of those who have
served our nation honorably as soldiers in the United
States Army and to provide college scholarships to
spouses of enlisted soldiers serving on active duty in
the United States Army.
the year 2000, a handful of U.S. Army veterans joined
together to develop plans for establishing a foundation
to assist the needy sons and daughters of soldiers and
Army veterans in achieving their dreams of higher
education. It was the vision of these Army veterans that
the Foundation would grow and be able to benefit an ever
increasing number of deserving children of soldiers.
Following the events of 9/11, the
Foundation took on a new meaning for its founders and
volunteers. They established a scholarship in memory of
a fellow soldier, Captain Jennifer Shafer-Odom who was
killed during the war on drugs in Columbia, and
additional scholarships were soon established in memory
of those fallen in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In 2001, the Internal Revenue Service
recognized the Foundation as a 501(c)(3) non-profit,
making all donations to the Foundation fully tax
deductible to the extent allowed by federal law. In
order to recognize the sacrifices of the spouses of
serving enlisted soldiers, in 2006 the Board opened
eligibility for scholarships to such spouses as well.
In 2016, the Army Scholarship Foundation
awarded a record 103 scholarships to deserving Army
family members in pursuit their educational dreams.
Since 2001, the Foundation has awarded more than 300
scholarships averaging approximately $1,000 each.
Unfortunately, many highly qualified applicants do not
receive awards due to lack of funding.
The Army Scholarship Foundation continues
today as an all-volunteer organization, run by caring
individuals seeking to assist Army family members in
their educational pursuits as a small way of saying
"thank you" for the many sacrifices made by Army
