The NWFMOA Scholarship Fund was established in 1981 for the purpose of recognizing outstanding JROTC students in the five Okaloosa County High Schools of Baker, Crestview, Fort Walton Beach, Choctawhatchee, and Niceville. The first recorded monetary award was $500.00 presented to a graduating Senior at Crestview High School. Since then the program has evolved to currently awarding seven scholarships totaling $16,000 per year to graduating senior JROTC cadets who will be enrolled in college-level ROTC programs. At its Board of Directors meeting in January 2018, the Scholarship Fund increased the amount of its basic scholarships from $1,500 to $2,000, adopted the “Chong Cha (Kim) Parisot Memorial Scholarship” (at $2,000) and the “Lt. Col, James (Jim) Heavener Memorial Scholarship” (at $4,000).  In addition, the Board added two new scholarships for JROTC cadets at Navarre High School and Walton High School.

Scholarship awards are sent to the college where the student is enrolled and participating in the college ROTC program only after we receive verification of enrollment. The top award is currently $4,000. The ROTC students are eligible for a full government scholarship during their junior and senior college years, and a commission in one of the military services upon graduation. Our scholarships are a way of promoting the mission of NWFMOA to help build future military officers and leaders. Your donation can help us to fund future scholarships. [For more information on our scholarship programs, please see the “Policies and Procedures for the NWFMOA Scholarship Fund” and “NWFMOA Scholarship Application” on this website.

In addition to the senior-year cadet scholarships, NWFMOA also recognizes the top junior-year JROTC cadets in each school with the MOAA medal, ribbon, and certificate.

Since its modest beginning the NWFMOA Scholarship Fund has provided over $100,000.00 in monetary awards, as well as the aforementioned certificates, medals and ribbons. The scholarship program is extremely popular with the students and their parents, and consistently produces many of the top students in each graduating class.

The NWFMOA Scholarship Fund, Inc is a 501c(3) non-profit organization.  All officers and directors are volunteers.  Thus, except for very minimal supplies, all donations are applied to our scholarships which go to seven LOCAL high school senior JROTC cadets. Our scholarship program is separate and distinct from the national MOAA program. Donations are tax deductible as provided by law.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

At the Annual Board of Directors meeting on Feb. 25, 2015, the Board of Directors revived the recognition program for those who donate $100.00 or more to the Scholarship Fund and renamed it the BG Frank Glunn Century Club in memory of a previous past-President.  In January 2017 the Board of Directors unanimously adopted a new recognition program for our BG Frank Glunn Century Club members. It is called the “Gold Century Club” and will recognize those who have donated $500 or more cumulatively since we reactivated the Century Club in 2015. In January 2018, the Scholarship Fund Board adopted a Certificate of Membership in the Gold Century Club to be presented to each person who has attained this level of donations. The Board and our JROTC cadets are most grateful for all of these donations.
