An Overview of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation

The owner of Stealth Self Health and a resident of Vero Beach, Florida, Robert Johnson has decades of executive-level health and medical experience. Committed to giving back to his community, Vero Beach’s Robert Johnson supports the Lee Sargent Memorial Scholarship through the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.

Established in 1962, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation has awarded over 35,000 scholarships worth almost $100 million, with special consideration for students who are in need or are children of Navy Corpsmen and Marines wounded or killed in the line of duty. Other scholarships are awarded to students with a parent wounded or killed in combat after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The foundation also has limited scholarship funding for the grandchildren of servicemen and women who were members of specific combat associations. Based on the principles of commitment, courage, and honor, the foundation receives its funding through direct donations, fundraising events, and local involvement and volunteering activities.

Whether applying for a career and technical education scholarship or an undergraduate and associate degree scholarship, Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation applicants must fulfill a set of basic requirements. In addition to being the child of an active duty or honorably discharged Marine or Navy Corpsman, applicants must be attending a college accredited by College Navigator. Students who have already earned an undergraduate degree or are enrolled in graduate school are ineligible.
