SENCLAND MOAA SCHOLARSHIP
To: JROTC Senior Instructors and high school counselors in New Hanover, Brunswick, Pender, Onslow, and Columbus Counties.
The SENCLAND Chapter of the Military Officers Association of American will again offer scholarships to qualifying seniors who are members of JROTC units or non-JROTC seniors who are children of active duty or honorably retired service members. Award amounts can vary from year to year depending on monies contributed to the Outreach Scholarship Fund. Please make this information available to counselors and interested candidates as soon as possible. Applications are due to the senior instructor or counselor no later than March 20, 2020 and should be screened for completeness. No more than three (3) applications from any one school will be considered but senior instructors should encourage as many cadets who are interested to apply. The names and completed applications will be forwarded to the chair of the scholarship committee, LeeRoy Hanna, at 302 RL Honeycutt Drive, Wilmington, NC 28412 by March 31, 2020. Applications received after that date or incomplete applications wall be returned and not considered. Senior Military Instructors are asked to verify the eligibility of non-JROTC applicants. All applicants must show proof of application to a community college or acceptance to a four (4) year college or university. Proof of acceptance will be required before any awards are presented.
