Scholarship Fund 2016

$500 & $1,000 Scholarships

 

The Falmouth Military Support Group was organized in 2003 exclusively for charitable purposes. It is the Falmouth Military Support Groupís mission to provide moral and physical support to our area OIF/OEF service members serving abroad and also upon their return home.

 

The Falmouth Military Support Group (FMSGrp) has established a Scholarship Fund, with monies earmarked to assist OIF/OEF Veterans from Cape Cod in their pursuit of educational opportunities. If you are a Veteran, just beginning or continuing a program of post-secondary or graduate studies, you are encouraged to apply for one of our scholarships. These scholarships are available for the 2016-2017 academic year. Previous recipients may re-apply, ($2,500 max).†† In the last few years we have given over $35,000 to our Cape Cod OIF/OEF Veterans.
