About the Scholarship

The brave men and women serving in the US military, along with their families, shoulder a tremendous burden in keeping our country safe and protecting our freedoms.

In times of peace, it’s easy to forget the sacrifice these Americans make. Yet nearly every day, US service members put their lives on the line around the world to support our country. As a nation, we owe our military an immense debt of gratitude.

The WiseGeek Military Appreciation Scholarship is meant to honor those who have made a commitment to serve our country. The grant is available to active, former, or future service members across all branches of our military - Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, Coast Guard, National Guard.
