The MG James Ursano Scholarship Program for Dependent Children helps Army families pay for undergraduate college expenses for their dependent children.

Funds may be used toward tuition, fees, books, supplies, and room and board. Awards are need-based as determined by the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) on the SAR from the FAFSA. Award amounts vary each year based on the applicant’s EFC, our total approved budget, and the number of complete applications received by AER.

  • be under the age of 24
  • remain unmarried for the entire academic year
  • maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA and be pursuing his/her first undergraduate degree at an accredited college or university.
  • not be a member of the military or be attending a military academy

The scholarship cycle runs from 1 January through 1 April for the upcoming academic year. All scholarship recipients are notified of their award by email and funds are sent directly to the school indicated during the the scholarship acceptance process prior to each semester. Please read the PROGRAM GUIDELINES document on the Army Emergency Relief Website for detailed information about our scholarship program.
