Scholarship Fund 2020
$500 & $1,000 Scholarships
In Memory of SGT Rebecca Silva
†††† 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 service members mobilized in support of Operations ENDURING FREEDOM (Afghanistan- 10/2001- 12/2014) and IRAQI FREEDOM (Iraq- 3/2003- 12/2011) serving in garrison, abroad and upon their return home.
†††† The Falmouth Military Support Group (FMSGrp) has established a Scholarship Fund, with monies earmarked to assist these OEF/OIF 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 2020-2021 academic year. Previous recipients may re-apply.†† In the last 10 years we have given over $60,000 to our Cape Cod OEF/OIF Veterans.
