2020 Robin Moore / Karen Stone Scholarship Announcement

            Chapter 38 is announcing college scholarships in the following disciplines – General Studies, Vocational, and Arts.  General Studies are those pursuing traditional education outside of Arts or Vocational; Arts disciplines will be defined as education in traditional art fields (music, visual, dance, theater), but will also include those pursuing education in architecture, media arts, and computer design; Vocational are those skills required for a specific trade (carpentry, welding, plumbing, etc).  

            Three scholarships of $2,500.00 each will be awarded – one per discipline.  Through our scoring template, the priority will go to graduating high school seniors; however, this priority should not prevent college enrollees, those previously attempted but denied, or those enrolling in post graduate education from submitting packets.

            Additionally, the submission of a scholarship packet with Chapter 38 does not preclude those authorized from participating in the SFA National Education Assistance Fund or the SF Scholarship Program (Requirements differ slightly from those of Chapter 38).

Requirements:  Must be a current member, or family member of current member, of Chapter 38; or currently assigned, or family member, of a Soldier currently assigned to the 5th Special Forces Group (SFG).

To apply – the following documentation is required:

  1. An introduction letter from applicant, stating area of discipline (GEN, ART, VOC) and intent, and addressed to the SFA, Chapter 38 Scholarship Committee.
  2. A written letter from applicant’s sponsor (Current Chapter Member) addressed to SFA 38 Scholarship Committee; for non-members, a sponsoring letter from a Senior Non-Commissioned Officer or Officer currently assigned (as of 1 January 2020) to the 5th SFG (affiliation will be verified).
  3. For impending High School Graduates, a copy of their current high school transcripts and an acceptance letter from your intended college of choice; for Under Graduate / Post Graduates, their current / most recent college transcripts.
  4. Three recommendation / sponsorship letters, in addition to that previously outlined in #2; for those applying for the Karen Stone Arts Scholarship one of these letters must come from an arts instructor, teacher, coordinator in order to verify history, desire, and future intent to pursue an Arts education.

All required documents must be postmarked no later than 18 April 2020 to the address on the above letterhead.

            Questions regarding any requirements need to be addressed to the Scholarship Committee chairperson at sfa38scholarship@gmail.com .
