Corvias Foundation, an award-winning private, charitable foundation committed to supporting the pursuit of higher education, announced today that applications for the 2015 Scholarships and Educational Grants are now available. The Foundation is committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education and has awarded more than $5.2 million in scholarships and grants to children and spouses of active-duty service members since 2006.
“Each year we are impressed with the quality of our applicants and their educational ambitions,” said Maria Montalvo, Executive Director of the Corvias Foundation. “We are humbled to serve military families, and proud to help them reach their full educational potential.”
Applications for Our Future Scholarships must be submitted by February 12, 2015, and will be awarded to high school seniors with plans of attending a four-year university or college. The scholarships are in the amount of up to $50,000 per person. Corvias Foundation will select 10 children of active-duty service members stationed at Forts Meade, Bragg, Polk, Rucker, Riley, and Sill; Aberdeen Proving Ground, Edwards Air Force Base, Eglin Air Force Base, Eielson Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field, McConnell Air Force Base and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. Recipients of the scholarships will be notified in April 2015.
“Corvias Foundation has made a significant impact on my college career. Besides the substantial financial assistance, it has been wonderful being a part of such an expansive and tight-knit support network that the Foundation encompasses,” said Houren Z., a past scholarship recipient. “Knowing that everyone within the Foundation family is so dedicated to the pursuit of excellence definitely motivates me to try my best every day.”
Applications for 2015 Educational Grants must be submitted by May 7, 2015. Grants are given in the amount of up to $5,000 to spouses of active-duty service members stationed at the military installations listed above. Applicants may be in any stage of the educational process. Recipients of a grant will be notified in July 2015.
Applications and all necessary paperwork for both the Scholarship and Educational Grant must be submitted by the due date in order to be considered. Those chosen may begin using their scholarship or grant in the fall of 2015. Families do not have to reside in on-post/base housing in order to qualify for scholarships or grants. Eligible service members stationed at these 13 Army and Air Force installations can serve in any branch of the military.
