Officers’ Spouses’ Club scholarships available

By Randolph Officers' Spouses' Club

The Randolph Officers' Spouses' Club 2008-2009 scholarship program is currently accepting application packages from graduating seniors in the San Antonio area.

"Each year, we raise funds to provide scholarships to AF dependents, both officer and enlisted," said Marilyn Lewis, Randolph Officers' Spouses' Club Chairperson for Scholarships. "This past year we were able to fund 28 scholarships, the least of which was $1,000, to deserving AF kids in our military community."

Last year, the ROSC welcomed First Command of Cibolo and Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union in underwriting one scholarship each, demonstrating their dedication to supporting the military.

ROSC volunteers work year-round to raise funds for the scholarship program.

While the RAFB Thrift Shop is the greatest source of funds, the annual ROSC bazaar is the largest single-event provider of funds, said Mrs. Lewis. This year's Bazaar is at the Live Oak Civic Center on Oct. 25 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Air Force family members who are graduating seniors from Greater San Antonio area high schools are encouraged to apply through the Minnie Piper Foundation. School counselors will have application forms and can assist them in applying.

Basic eligibility requirements are:
· Students must have a current military ID showing them to be a dependent of active duty, retired, or deceased AF personnel
· Applicant must be a dependent of AF personnel stationed at Randolph, or deployed directly from Randolph
· AF dependents graduating from SA area high schools whose parents are Randolph Officers' Club or ROSC members are eligible to apply
