The purpose of the Cherry Point OSC Scholarship Program is to acknowledge outstanding military dependents of any rank within the MCAS Cherry Point community by offering financial assistance towards education in any field of their choice. In previous years, the OSC has been honored to provide numerous merit based scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. The number and amount of scholarships awarded is based on funds allocated by the OSC Board through income generated during the OSC year (June 1st through May 31st).
Thank you to those that submitted their application for 2017. An Awards Banquet took place on May 31st to recognize the 18 recipients who received scholarships of $40,000 in total for 2017.
A majority of the funds raised to fund these scholarships come from the sale of donated items at The Whistle Stop Thrift Store. Please consider making the Whistle Stop your thrift shop of choice for donations and purchases.
