What is more fun than giving away money? Being awarded a scholarship! 

2020 Application Deadline Extended to April 13!

Since 1985, MSON has been supporting the local military community with educational scholarships.  Scholarships are provided to dependents of active duty, retired or deceased military members from all branches of service and ranks. Awards range from $500 to $2,500 and are merit based. 

Due to the closures surrounding the COVID-19, MSON is extending its 2020 deadline (from April 6 to April 13) and is relaxing a few requirements to ease the submission process for applicants.

Changes to the 2020 submission process include:
    1)  Applicants may now submit unofficial transcripts instead of official ones.
    2)  Recommendation letters may be sent directly to MSON and are not required to be included with submission packet.

Applicants need to be attached to a military installation in Rhode Island or previously attached if the applicant (Graduating Seniors and Dependent Children only) is associated with a
retired service member.   We invite the following below to apply for a MSON scholarship:

    1) Graduating High School Seniors

    2) Dependent Children (*Not High School Seniors): Scholarships can be applied to post-secondary, certification or professional programs.

    3) Spouses (Active Duty Only): Scholarships can be applied to continuing education programs. 

Applications, linked below, must be post-marked by April 13, 2020.  Award winners will be announced after May 15, 2020.  All eligibility and requirement information is listed on each respective application form.
