Commissaries have always been an essential part of military life, and a great way to stretch your military paycheck and support your military family. But did you know that your local commissary can also help you to send your military children through college?

Each year, military families worldwide have the opportunity to receive Scholarships for Military Children from their local commissaries. It's just one way companies express a token of their appreciation for your dedicated service in the U.S. military - the very companies whose products you buy at your local commissary.

HOW ARE THESE MILITARY SCHOLARSHIPS FUNDED?

The Scholarships for Military Children Program is funded through generous donations from the companies that supply products at military commissaries worldwide. Along with providing your military family with over 30 percent savings on products, these companies give back to your military community by funding the Scholarships for Military Children Program.
