MG James Ursano Scholarship Program

All scholarship checks for the fall term have been mailed to the schools chosen by recipients on the Scholarship Agreement. Checks should arrive at the schools by the end of July. Please be patient and allow the schools time to process the checks before calling.

The MG James Ursano Scholarship Program is a need based scholarship program established to assist children of Army Soldiers in obtaining a 4-year undergraduate degree. Applicants must reapply each year and may receive assistance for up to four academic years as long as they meet the eligibility criteria below.

Scholarship applications are accepted from 1 January to 1 May each year for assistance for the following academic year.


ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
  • Student must be pursuing their first undergraduate degree and be enrolled full time as an undergraduate student for the entire academic year at a school accredited by the U.S. Department of Education. (Because financial need is already met, students attending service academies are not eligible.)
  • Student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • Student must be a dependent of a Soldier on federal active duty, a retired Soldier, or a deceased active or deceased retired Soldier
To be a dependent, the student must:
  • Be under the age of 23 (Eligibility ends at the end of the semester/term in which the student reaches their 23rd birthday. Example – turning 23 in December would mean the scholarship would be awarded for fall term ONLY.)
  • Be registered in DEERS
  • Remain unmarried for the entire academic year
  • Not be a member of the National Guard, Reserves, or other military branch
