Third Marine Division Association Memorial Scholarship Fund

Description

The Memorial Scholarship Fund has been providing need-based financial assistance to qualified applicants who have consistently demonstrated excellence in colleges and universities across the United States. The mission in 1969 was to provide assistance to dependents of Third Marine Division members who lost their lives in Vietnam or whose post service death had been certified by the Department of Veterans Affairs to be the result of hostile enemy action or other disabilities incurred. The mission has been since expanded to all subsequent Military Operations (as defined below in the Plan Section IV), living and deceased members (and their widows) of the Association and Association members who are Marines discharged within two years prior to the date of their first application. .A monetary award of not less than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) or more than Fifteen Hundred Dollars ($1,500.00) per Scholastic Year, per eligible applicant, may be awarded by a majority vote of the Trustees. At the sole discretion of the Fund's Trustees, the range of award amounts may be reduced or increased depending on unusual conditions of financial need and of Fund monies available. To be considered eligible for Fund benefits, as stated in Plan SECTIONS II and III , an applicant must meet specific criteria of eligibility and compliance: These stated eligibility and compliance criteria may be modified by a vote of a majority of the Trustees only when they deem a special circumstance warrants such action and with the concurrence of the Chairman of the Association's Board of Directors' Executive Committee.
