Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The vision of the Fort Hood Military Family Member Scholarship Fund is to be able to provide educational scholarships to all high schools seniors and spouses of military members stationed at Fort Hood who want to continue their education.

In 2020, scholarship awardees were comprised of 32 high school students receiving a total of $23,250 and 1 spouse receiving a total of $3,000. Our goal for the next 5 years is to double the amount of scholarships we are able to award.

We are increasing our fundraising efforts as well as making more connections within the military community to be able to increase scholarship applications.
