Reston, VA – Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation has expanded capacity to provide scholarship assistance to military children of the fallen thanks to generous gifts from charity partners including the A. James and Alice B. Clark Foundation and the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund.
Qualified incoming freshmen are asked to enroll online at the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation website to begin the scholarship process.
During the 2017/2018 academic year, Fallen Patriots estimates that they will be supporting the college education of over 100 freshmen who have lost a parent in the line of duty. However, the mission requires connecting with as many eligible children of the fallen as possible, and in the past 35 years an estimated 20,000 children have regrettably lost a parent in this way.
The mission at Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. We aim to bridge the gap in funding between the VA, other resources and the total cost of undergraduate college education.
Fallen Patriots scholarships cover everything related to the undergraduate college experience including, but not limited to, assistance with:
- Before College: college application fees, SAT/ACT exams, tutoring and fees, orientation/registration fees
- During College: tuition and fees, room and board, books, living expenses, computer
- After College: student loans
- Accredited programs at colleges, universities and trade schools
