The Fort Knox Spouses and Community Club would like to announce that we will again be awarding scholarships this year along with First Command Educational Foundation and the Kentucky Bluegrass Sergeants Major Association. In addition, the 1st TSC Audie Murphy Club will join us this year and will provide an additional scholarship. Applications were already finished before this agreement took place so they are not listed on the application but will be listed on promotional and award information.
CLICK HERE for the application to apply for a 2018-19 FKSCC High School Scholarship. Applications and additional information can also be found at our website www.fortknoxscc.org. Please use the fillable PDF version; it allows you to make edits and makes the application much easier for us to read. The FKSCC realizes not all students have convenient access to a computer and will not penalize them for filling out the application by hand if you give them a printed copy of the PDF application.
The deadline for the applications is February 7, 2019. Please note that this is the same date as last year.
Students will need an official transcript (including ACT/SAT Scores), two letters of recommendation (not from family members), an essay, counselor signature, and a completed application to apply. Eligibility criteria have CHANGED since last year (the student's ID card just needs to be valid at the time you sign his/her form) and are listed below. In addition, students who accept a military academy appointment or a full tuition/room/board scholarship are now eligible to receive our scholarship in addition (this is a change from previous years).
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 270-872-8548.
