The Association of the United States Army's George Washington Chapter has opened its scholarship program to applications for 2017.  Full details are below.

George Washington Chapter AUSA Scholarship Program For 2017

The George Washington Chapter 2017 scholarship committee is in the early stages of devising the 2017 scholarship strategy and plan.  During fiscal years 2014-2016 the chapter awarded almost $75,000.00 in scholarships with the top awards named after the beloved former George Washington Chapter President, the “Ed Dauksz Scholarship,” and the “Major General Harry Green STEM Scholarship.” A cyber scholarship is also planned for 2017.

The scholarship program was established to provide recognition, inspiration, financial assistance and encouragement to our members and their families in keeping America’s Army Strong.  These awards are presented to outstanding members and family members enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs.
