2ND CAVALRY ASSOCIATION SCHOLARSHIP/GRANT PROGRAM
Academic year 2018
The Second Calvary Association is offering an updated scholarship program for the incoming class of 2018. This program will offer scholarships and grants to qualified and selected applicants. The Association will begin the program with academic scholarship(s) for undergraduate study at universities and colleges, to include two-year community colleges. A new and additional category of grant financial support will be offered to selected applicants pursuing training for professional or skilled trades. This can be defined as trades/professions offering training in structured, formal programs which result in certificates of skills training completion. Examples of such areas of study would be, but are not limited to: non-BS nursing degrees; computer technicians, programmers, and coders; medical technical study, such as imaging professionals (X-ray, MRI, and CT scanning); Physician assistant; medical coding; and, union skilled trades. Applicants for these grants must be prepared to provide the scholarship/grant board with a detailed curriculum for their chosen skills, as well as identifying those degree-granting and training facilities where such training will occur.
Scholarships may be given annually to an applicant that is selected based on qualifications set forth by the Association Board. Those qualifications will include a demonstrated 3.0 GPA or higher for high school graduates, an SAT score of 1190 (or comparable ACT score), and a short essay of one typewritten (single spaced) page on a topic selected by the Association Board. For current college students this requirement may also be satisfied with one year of college academic work with a 2.75 GPA. The scholarship will be available only to current members of the Second Cavalry Association and their family members, to include spouses, children and grandchildren, who will be full-time students enrolled at institutions of post-secondary learning beginning in the fall, 2018. These colleges and universities will be of the applicant's choosing, but will be in good standing with state boards of education. The granting of these scholarships will be solely at the discretion of the Association Board.
Supporting grants may also be awarded to qualified and selected students who are accepted into formal training programs for skilled trades or professional training programs which produce definable skills. These programs can be of shorter duration than those of university level academic study, but will occur in a suitable environment and be provided by professionals in the areas of study. It will be the applicant's responsibility to provide a detailed description of the training and the course of study, along with the resultant skill to be attained. The selected applicant will submit a one-page explanation setting forth their expectations in the selected training course. The selected applicant shall be a graduate of a high school with, a 2.0 GPA at graduation. Exceptions to this policy at the discretion of the Association Board.
