2020-21 Scholarships for Military Children Program
Like all ongoing programs this spring, the annual Scholarships for Military Children Program has also had to make modifications as a result of COVID-19.
Mostly notably, the Defense Commissary Agency has notified store managers not to host the scholarship recognition ceremonies normally held in each store in the early summer. Recipients will still be notified of their selection in early May, and store directors will mail the certificates normally presented in a ceremony to their recipients.
With the postponement of the Commissary Roundtable, the annual program during which two Fort Lee Commissary recipients normally address the industry and commissary representatives present for the meeting, will not be scheduled this year.
The rest of the program remains as it has in the past. Sponsoring companies will be recognized by posters displayed in each store and by a certificate of appreciation from the Acting DeCA Director and the Chairman of Fisher House Foundation, both of which will be mailed to sponsoring companies.
Each of the 500 recipients selected for the 2020-21 school year will receive a $2,000 scholarship grant that will be mailed in the July time-frame.
So, with some minor modifications, the program continues in this its 20th anniversary.
A big thank you to both the donors and the supporters of this special military quality of life program!
