             SCHOLARSHIP GUIDELINES
Eligibility: Applicants must be a graduating high school senior, the son or
daughter of an active duty or retired active duty military member, and must live in
the Anchorage area. The Anchorage area is considered to be from Wasilla to
Girdwood. This includes the student whose parents are divorced. If the parent
with whom the student lives with has married a military member, who in turn has
not legally adopted the student yet provides support and the student has a military
ID card, this student is also eligible. Rank is not a consideration.

NOTE: EACH STUDENT MUST ENCLOSE A PHOTOCOPY OF HIS/HER
CURRENT MILITARY ID CARD.

Selection Criteria: Selection of recipients is based upon scholarship, leadership,
and citizenship. Our goal is to choose students who are recognized as well-
rounded individuals. Scholarship includes GPA, difficulty and variety of classes,
as well as Honors and Advanced Placement classes. Applicants must have at least
a 3.0 GPA. . The Leadership and Citizenship categories include all activities in
and out of school, offices held, honors and awards, work experience, etc. Each
committee member rates an applicant on a scale of 1 – 10 with 10 being the
highest.

While need is not considered in the selection process, a recipient may not also
accept a four-year full tuition scholarship or an appointment to a service academy.
This will forfeit the scholarship and it will be awarded to a selected alternate.

Each recipient is responsible for providing the EOSO with the name and financial
aid office address of his/her chosen college. Upon notification, the EOSO will
mail a check directly to the school on behalf of the student.

The scholarship may not carry over into another year. Any funds not used are
forfeited and are to be returned to the EOSO.

Deadline: All applications must be received by March 31, 2009 to be considered
for selection. Please allow enough mailing time for the packets to reach the EOSO
by the deadline. Late submissions will not be accepted.
